Conference for the people, by the people?

I read an article somewhere about tech conferences where there are no "speakers". Instead at an opening session the audience votes on topics, which are then scheduled as sessions, and whoever shows up at that session participates and shares knowledge.

Has anyone else heard of these, and if so where could I get more info?

Ryan,
I think you are talking about an Unconference or Barcamp.

That's it - thanks!
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
