World IA Day - DFW (Dallas)
Join us on February 18, 2017 as Information Architecture practitioners around the world come together to celebrate, share knowledge, and bring awareness to the importance of strategy and structure within our communities and economies.
Our Dallas event will have two different tracks: one for those looking to learn more about Information Architecture as a practice (IA track), and one for those who are looking for a bit of continuing education and learning from professionals with similar goals and challenges, but don't call themselves 'IAs' (Continuing Ed track).
Learn more about our sponsors, speakers and schedule on our website: http://2017.worldiaday.org/location/dallas-texas-united-states
WIAD 17 Theme: Information Strategy & Structure
In today’s world, organizations are required to rethink how to architect and manage information to maintain a competitive and organizational edge. Many are embracing strategies that are more flexible, moving away from isolated systems and departmental silos. These organizations recognize the need for information to be structured so that it is clear, usable, findable and understandable.
But, the need for information strategy and structure extends beyond the enterprise. Whether information is architected to inform algorithms, to bring awareness to important societal challenges, or to clearly communicate available resources to help those in need; information strategy and structure plays an important role in our everyday lives.
What is World IA Day?
World Information Architecture Day is a one-day annual celebration of this phenomenon. Hosted in dozens of locations across the world by local organizers on February 18th, we focus on telling stories of information being architected by everyone from teachers to business owners; technologists to artists; designers to product managers.
