Event description

Description

World IA Day is a one-day, annual celebration focused on the practice and education of Information Architecture. Our celebration brings together a diverse community including information architects, user experience designers, content strategists, product managers, developers, scholars, and students. We come together to talk about and shape the future of Information Architecture.


Each year locations around the world curate content based on a global theme. This year our theme is Information Architecture for Good.


Join the Washington DC location on February 24, 2018 as information architecture practitioners around the DMV area come together to celebrate, share knowledge, and discuss the importance of strategy and structure within our communities and economies. Making information more accessible, authentic and easier to process is the main way in which information architecture contributes to our society’s progress.

DC Event Highlights Include:

  • Keynote panel on civic design moderated by Whitney Quesenberry, co-director of the Center for Civic Design
  • Ren Pope and Laura Hermann, "Data Fracking: An Ethical Approach to Big Data"
  • Kayenda Johnson and Catharine Robertson, "Card Sorting as a Tool for UX Democracy"

Registration and breakfast starts at 9:15am. Lunch is on your own at 12:40 (we’ll have a handout with some nearby suggestions), and happy hour will be after the event at about 5:15pm.
