THATCamp (The Humanities And Technology Camp) is a user-generated "unconference" for technologists and humanities professionals, including university and college faculty, librarians and archivists, and museum staff. Participants set the agenda for work and discussion on the fly, and the focus is on participation, discussion, and sharing of information.
