On the last weekend of September 2006 there will be a conference and retreat
on information architecture in Sydney, Australia. This is the first such
event dedicated to IA in Australia.
Sep 30th & Oct 1st
As well as conveniently following on from this year's Web Directions
conference <http://www.webdirections.org/>), this event is scheduled for the
same weekend as the EURO IA conference. Keith Instone has already suggested
a live link between the two conferences. <http://instone.org/node/190>
The retreat is planned to be a semi-formal series of practical sessions on
information architecture and related topics, aimed at practicing IAs and
those within the broader industry interested in expanding their knowledge of
the theory and practice.
There¹s some great local and international speakers to get the thoughts
moving, including Mark Bernstein, Thomas Vander Wal, Dan Saffer, Donna
Maurer (that's me!), David Sless, Steve Baty, and James Robertson.
There will be case study presentations; detailed how-to sessions; and
general 'where are we going' discussions. We will also be organising some
group participation sessions and even leaving a slot or two open for some
And there'll be opportunities a-plenty to meet and mingle with peers and
uber-IAs from Australia and around the world. It¹s a weekend retreat, so you
can relax and discuss the joys, tribulations, and tricks of information
architecture with like-minded individuals.
More information will be forthcoming in the next few weeks & months, so
pencil in those dates, subscribe to the RSS or Atom news feeds, or sign up
for email announcements.
If you're in Australia, you shouldn't miss it.
If you want to visit, this is a great reason to do so.
