> The Information Architecture Summit is the premier gathering place
> for those interested in information architecture. The 2008
> conference will be the 9th IA Summit and will be held at the Hyatt
> Regency Hotel in Miami, Florida, USA from April 12-14 with
> pre-conference sessions from April 10-11.
> The 2007 IA Summit attracted over 570 attendees with varying degrees
> of IA experience and from many related fields. Attendees are
> passionate about information architecture and user experience and
> many are actively involved in the community and the summit itself –
> over 230 of the attendees provided feedback about the event with 93%
> indicating that they would attend the summit again and 95%
> indicating they would recommend the summit to a colleague.
> This is your chance to contribute and take part! We're now calling
> for submissions for presentations, panels, research papers,
> pre-conference workshops, posters and management track content.
> The 2008 theme of "Experiencing Information" shifts the focus back
> to users. A user experience exists only to allow people to "do
> things" (in the broadest sense ... buying books, sharing photos with
> friends, looking something up on wikipedia, etc).
> What dimensions of information do users typically experience while
> "doing things", and how can we design information environments that
> best support these users and activities? Such dimensions might
> include:
> - Information quantity and the experience of choice (e.g. Barry
> Schwartz – The Paradox of Choice);
> - The timing of information encounters and information use ( e.g.
> Jared Spool – "seducible moments");
> - The subconscious consumption of information (e.g. BJ Fogg –
> Persuasive Technology);
> - Rapid or intuitive processing of information (e.g. Malcolm
> Gladwell – Blink);
> - The social and participatory aspects of information and
> information communities (e.g. David Weinberger's work);
> - The wide range of information media: the Web, virtual worlds,
> ubiquitous computing, mobile technology, physical
> spaces (e.g. Joshua Prince-Ramus' and Michael Bierut's work)
> Proposals can address core IA principles, emerging trends and
> technologies, the management of IA or UX teams, or the business of
> IA. We are also interested in cross-disciplinary contributions to
> the practice of IA from related fields such as library science,
> user experience, interaction design, and user centered design.
> We encourage submissions from practitioners, managers, academics,
> and students. We also enjoy hearing from developers, business
> analysts, and others who work with information architects and/or
> information architecture.
> For more information, details about submission procedures and
> deadlines please see the summit website, www.iasummit.org.
