While I was busy with the preparations for both the SIGCHI.NL and the EURO IA conferences, there was this other not unsignificant conference committee that required my attention every now and then. It took some discussions and then a quiet period over the summer holidays, but now I am proud to be part of another team of hardworking IAs that is preparing a conference: The IA Summit 2006 conference site is online!
Yesterday, in a flash of inspiration, I wrote the copy on the opening page around the three subthemes, "Learning, Doing, Selling". If that's too long for you, here's the official announcement text:
IA Summit 2006 - Call for Papers
We are seeking proposals for presentations, case studies, panels, posters, and pre-conference workshops for the 2006 Information Architecture Summit. Go to http://www.iasummit.org/2006/call.htm for information and to submit.
We encourage submissions from practitioners, academics, and students. We also want to hear from developers, business analysts, managers, and others who work with information architects and/or deal with information architecture.
For the first time this year we have added a peer-reviewed academic track, and we encourage submissions from academics highlighting IA research or theory.
The 2006 IA Summit is March 23-27, 2006, in Vancouver, Canada. See www.iasummit.org for more information.
Join me in Vancouver next year, and help us put a great program together by submitting a proposal. I look forward to reviewing it! :-)
