"Making Connections", the fourth Information Architecture Summit, is the largest dedicated meeting for information architecture professionals. Case Studies, tutorials, seminars, and presentations ranging from the theoretical to the pragmatic. "Making Connections" is an inclusive event bringing together presenters and attendees from business and academic communities. Expect to experience thought provoking and inspiring perspectives on the theory and practice of IA. Past IA summits have attracted hundreds of representatives from a variety of disciplines including:

  • information science
  • human-computer interaction
  • graphic and interface design
  • experience design
  • usability engineering

Coming together from around the world, the attendees are the real draw of the Summit. These annual conferences are one of the rare opportunities for practitioners in the field to meet face to face to share practical experience, new approaches and the occasional war story.

The three-day conference¹s keynote address will be presented by Stewart Brand.
A pioneer of the electronic frontier and the founder of the Whole Earth Catalog, cofounder of The Well, and author of The Media Lab: Inventing the Future at MIT and, most recently, How Buildings Learn.

Smart Mobs author, Howard Rheingold, characterizes Brand as someone who "evolved into a legendary figure, historic even, who is, year in and year out, the most interesting and influential thinker I know."

Other featured speakers include prominent figures in the field of IA, but many speakers this year are brand new to IA Summits, with fresh, new experiences, ideas and opinions.
