As promised, we’ve got something exciting coming next month…we’ll be collaborating with World IA Day Seattle on a free event! There will be scheduled speakers, a free lunch, and a few hours of unconference to tide you over until our regularly scheduled programming resumes in the fall.
What does all this mean? It means we are presenting a healthy mix of conference and unconference all in the name of Information Architecture. And it’s free!
World IA Day (WIAD)
What is World IA Day? WIAD is:
“World Information Architecture Day is a free one-day annual conference hosted by the Information Architecture Institute and held in dozens of cities across the world.
We are a community of like-minded professionals and enthusiasts who share the common goal of teaching, learning, and shaping the future of Information Architecture.
Each year, a new theme is selected, new cities are added, and our community continues to grow as more people from all across the world join this truly global celebration of Information Architecture.”
InfoCamp @ WIAD Seattle
So how exactly is InfoCamp going to work as part of WIAD? Well, things are going to be a little different than what you are used to.
For starters, we will be at the Impact HUB in Pioneer Square and will not have access to the same kind of tech we’ve grown accustomed to at UW’s Mary Gates Hall. As such, presentations will need to be a little old school and analog. Please keep that in mind as you prepare your ideas!
Second, in some cases we will be sharing a larger space among multiple smaller presentation and discussion groups. We’re going to try to work some magic with the layout and acoustics, but this may be a challenge.
While we’re talking about space, it may be limited. We will have two InfoCamp time slots in the afternoon and we are aiming for 4-6 sessions each. 0
Third, due to some of the challenges with the space, we’re asking you to plan a little bit if you want to present. Throw some ideas around on our Facebook pages and see how people react. Think about the event theme and what it means in your profession or just do as you always do for InfoCamp–bring your ideas to share.
