A one day gathering of thought leaders who research and confront information overload, organized by the Information Overload Research Group.
In today's global knowledge economy, there may be no greater challenge to progress and productivity than information overload. Come join the conversation with others from academia, technology, journalism, psychology, and research as we together work to tackle this growing problem.
Sponsored by the Information Overload Research Group (IORG), the day will feature talks given by some of the premier thought leaders in the domain, as well as group sessions and discussions to explore how best to facilitate the collaborative exchange of research and best practices. The setting will be perfect for making new connections, renewing old relationships, and certainly for learning a vast amount of highly actionable information. Whether you are coming to represent a company or to share bleeding edge research ideas, all are welcome.
Overload 2013 will take place in downtown San Francisco on February 9th at the pariSoma Innovation Loft, the perfect venue for speaking and collaborating. The agenda will be participant driven, and cover a wide breadth of topics. Last year's Overloaded conference included talks given on everything from the new idea of email hashtags to the psychology behind youth and the need to disconnect from the wired world, and also featured several break-off sessions where new ideas formed from the combined experience of the participants. A huge amount was packed into one day, and this year's conference promises to be even more exciting.
The cost of the conference is $99, which covers food and expenses. A lunch and snacks will be served. The Hotel Whitcomb is the closest recommended hotel to the venue, and more info and reservations can be made at http://www.hotelwhitcomb.com.
