Presentations and Workshop

The Role of IA in Modern Digital Strategy by Micah Slavens

Time flies when you’re having fun. This grey-whiskered-digital-veteran looks at where we’ve come from and where we’re headed in information design. The art and science of IA has had to evolve quickly in step with our technology and social ecosystems. The pace is so rapid, it's easy to forget how we got here—to think this is how it always was. Looking back isn't only entertaining, it's a solid reminder to approach our future challenges with humility, courage and good humour.


"Blank" is better than "other" by Mark Morris

What do you do when you just can’t figure out how to classify something? In this talk, we will look at the importance of classification and categorization in both real world and IT situations and what to do when face to face with a “Platypus”.


User, Context and Information Architecture workshop by Isabelle Sperano and Robert Andruchow

The purpose of this interactive workshop is to help participants understand the importance of the context when designing an organization system. The attendees will gain a better understanding of the different dimensions to consider when organizing content.
