LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
With every passing week, the ubiquity of access to information is shaping our world in ways we can see: shifting population centers, new ways of creating and using public/private spaces. These tangible experiences are also transposed through the lens of design to affect the invisible spaces of social discourse, cultural framework and personal communication.
IDEA brings together leading design thinkers from across the globe, and challenges them: to share beyond the concepts that inspire them most, and deliver practical guidance for attendees to begin making an immediate difference in the networked world of today and tomorrow.
Staring with a full-day workshop led by EightShapes, and continuing over two days of illuminating presentations, IDEA 2009 will immerse attendees in both big ideas and accessible insights.
Brought to you by the Information Architecture Institute
The Information Architecture Institute is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization, operated by a dedicated, multi-national group of professionals. Volunteering our own resources, we aspire to build bridges to related disciplines and organizations. We invite you to join us in advancing the state of information architecture through research, education, advocacy and community service.
We live in exciting times. As the information age rolls forward, our businesses, markets and societies are being transformed into adaptive, connected networks. The Internet of today only hints at the ubiquitous communication infrastructure of tomorrow. The construction of this brave new world requires a new kind of architecture, focused on digital structures of information and software rather than physical structures of bricks and mortar. As we spend more time working and playing in these shared information spaces, people will need and demand better search, navigation and collaboration systems.
We are working hard to build an international membership that connects people with diverse languages, cultures and perspectives. So far, we have over 2200 members from 80 countries. Our Board of Directors and Board of Advisors are comprised of individuals from six continents. Our Translations Initiative and Local Group Program serve to promote and extend our services to all corners of the world.
