Call for Proposals: 10th Annual ASIS&T IA Summit
March 18-22, Memphis, Tennessee, US
The Information Architecture Summit is a premier gathering place for
information architects and all those who touch on IA to discuss, share and
learn more about information architecture. Last year's IA Summit attracted
well over 600 attendees from a wide range of fields, from 21 countries, and
from beginners to experienced IAs.
As this will be the 10th IA Summit, we are seeking proposals for
presentations, panels, case studies, research papers, posters and
pre-conference seminars, hands-on workshops and consortia that address this
year's theme: Expanding Our Horizons.
Proposals can stretch this theme* *by looking back over our history, forward
into emerging trends, platforms and technologies, in addition to addressing
our core IA principles and the business of IA. The theme is wide open for
interpretation and we look forward to seeing proposals that explore the
field in ways that interest people most, and from a wide range of
backgrounds, disciplines and functions.
Because user experience design is not just about methods and deliverables,
but also about getting results for employers and clients, this year we will
have a specific track devoted to business, strategy & management.
Building on the tradition from the past two events, we will continue to seek
and present research papers that make empirical or theoretical contributions
to information architecture. (You do not have to be affiliated with an
academic institution to submit a research paper.)
We encourage submissions from both within the field of IA - practitioners,
academics and students alike - and the related fields of library science,
user experience, interaction design and user-centered design; as well as
from those fields and disciplines that go beyond the traditional horizons of
IA and the web.
