UXcampNL is an unconference born from the desire to bring together industries and academic communities to share knowledge in an open environment. It is an intense one day event with presentations, discussions, workshops and demos in the field of User Experience.

UXcampNL originally started in 2011 by a group of User-System Interaction PDEng (Professional Doctorate Engineers) at the Technical University in Eindhoven. Unlike a traditional conference, it is shaped by the attendees themselves. Anyone willing to contribute and learn is welcome to join, give a talk, workshop or start a discussion.

The theme of the 2016 edition of UXcampNL will be ‘Bridging the gap’. There is an increasing interest from companies on how to gain knowledge in the area of UX and from universities in understanding how they can make an impact and better evaluate services and products. We are aiming at bridging this perceived gap by allowing companies to meet academics and experts in the field and as well as make first contact with students.
