Hi everyone,

I don't know if I posted this already, so just to make sure, here it is:


CROSSING BOUNDARIES: Information Architecture Summit '05

Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth
Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Session Proposals Accepted: September 24 - October 25, 2004
Poster Proposals Accepted: September 24 - December 5, 2004
Submit Online: <>

The 2005 Information Architecture (IA) Summit will cross boundaries with a
world-class program on IA theory, practice, and business.

Opening Keynote: B.J. Fogg <> . In a
nutshell and in his own
words, about his Persuasive Technology Lab at Stanford: I direct research
and design at the Stanford Persuasive Technology Lab. Our overall goal is to
create insight into interactive technologies designed to change people's
attitudes and behaviors. Our current projects include online credibility,
mobile persuasion (influencing people through mobile phones, PDAs, etc.),
and operant conditioning via computing systems.
Proposals are being solicited for presentations, workshops, panels, posters,
and pre-conference tutorials that address core IA principles or offer
cross-disciplinary contributions to the practice of IA.
We encourage submissions from:
. Practitioners, academics, and students in information architecture
and related fields (e.g. library science, user experience, interaction
design, and user centered design)
. Business practitioners who work with IAs (including business
analysts and managers)
. Developers and designers who work with IAs

Successful submissions will be judged on the following attributes:
. Appeal to new and/or established IAs
. Solid practical or academic merit
. Original, inspirational, or thought-provoking content
. High-quality written and graphic presentation
. Contribution to IA practice, theory, and community
Note: Marketing pitches will not be accepted.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
. Core IA skills
. Taxonomies, search, findability
. Business and IA (e.g. cross-functional teams, value proposition,
. Globalization and IA . Research and metrics in IA
. IA Career and Education
. IA in practice (e.g. content management implementations, web applications,
enterprise IA)
. IA and other disciplines (e.g. user experience, interaction design,
information design)
. Future directions and challenges (e.g. successes and opportunities,
semantic web)
