The Information Architecture Summit is the premier gathering place for information architects and other user experience professionals. Itís grown from a special interest groupís efforts to define an emerging field, to a rich and expanding community of practice, shaping and informing multiple disciplines. You donít have to be an information architect or user experience professional to enjoy the Summit. You simply have to love the art and science of structuring information. The Summit is a community effort: itís sponsored and run by ASIS&T, but couldnít happen without the contributions of hard-working volunteers from IA and like disciplines. To create the program, we rely heavily on the feedback and blind peer review from previous Summit attendees.
The Information Architecture Summit is the premier gathering place for information architects and other user experience professionals.
The best conversations happen in the hall.
This year marks the 11th annual Information Architecture Summit. Our theme is meant to inspire everyone in the communityóeven those who arenít presenting or volunteeringóto bring their best ideas to the table.
As busy practitioners, we rarely have the chance to step back and think about the future of our fieldóweíre too busy resolving day-to-day issues.
This is an opportunity to help each other become more efficient. By gathering and sharing practical solutions for everyday challenges, we can create more breathing room to plan for whatís to come.
