Welcoming you to SIG-IA

SIG-IA is guided by an ethic of inclusion, in which the full range of participants - from those who are self-taught to those with considerable academic training or practical experience - feel comfortable helping one other develop the professional practice of information architecture.

The SIG-IA dialogue includes, but is not limited to:

  • Stimulating collaboration among practitioners, researchers, and educators
  • Stimulating design, development, and execution of research activities and the development of new research fronts
  • Sharing applicable research to reduce redundancy
  • Sharing experiences with all aspects of information architecture practice
  • Shaping the education and training of future information architects
  • Building a shared vocabulary about information architecture
  • Chronicling emerging concerns and trends related to information architecture.
