2:00pm - 2:20pm Welcome & Registration

2:20pm - 2:40pm IA in today's world (Soyeon Lee)

What is information architecture? In early ages, many people believed IA's deliverables are sitemaps, navigation structure, content taxonomy, task flows etc. However, discussions around IA have been evolved in and out of IA communities and now they involve everything surrounded by information and contexts. Ethics, humanogy, and anthropology are also emerging topics in this field. Let me introduce what kinds of ideas were shared at EuroIA in Dublin, one of the most important IA/UX conferences.

2:40pm - 3:20pm  Accessible by design (Marc Harrod)

Accessibility by definition is about obtaining information as easily as possible, making content accessible for everyone. Designing for accessibility is far from just colour contrasts and font sizes, it should affect every part of your design process. From UX copy to how a screen reader will navigate through your design, and much more. This session will give you an understanding of the new WCAG 2.1 Accessibility Guideline and what it means to designers, developers, and the end user. Resulting in an improved experience for users.

3:20pm - 3:40pm Break & Network time

3:40pm - 5:40pm Design Sprint workshop by Tomomi Sasaki

Design sprints have caught on in our industry and beyond, as an accelerated & collaborative way to prototype answers to business questions. Taking elements from design thinking and lean start-up, it offers a structured process for multi-disciplinary teams to arrive at an answer they can act upon. In this workshop, I’ll break down the mechanics of a design sprint, introduce how to make it work for your organization and challenge, and take you through a series of activities to simulate the whole five-step process. The role of a sprint master is that of design leadership. My goal is for participants to walk out of this workshop, empowered to design for difference.

5:40pm - 6:00pm Lucky draw & Closing
