Call for participation: EuroIA (Deadline: May 17th 2009 12am CET)Hello,
The call for participation has just been announced for EuroIA, the fifth European Information Architecture Summit. This awesome conference takes place in lovely Copenhagen on 25-26 September.
From the EuroIA committee:
The Fifth European Information Architecture Summit’s focus is "Beyond Structure."
Structure can be thought of in many ways:
* Mash-ups, tagging, and emergent structures (e.g., wikis) change they way we conceive site design.
* Semantic technologies become more widespread bring new possibilities for structuring content and showing relationships in information previously not known.
* The way that design teams are structured, as well as business models and businesses themselves, deeply effects the quality and success of the user experiences we create.
* The objective of the event is to bring together a number of disciplines and practitioner communities by providing a stimulating environment for debate and an opportunity for establishing cooperation.
If you are using techniques from related disciplines in your day-to day work or researching the latest ways to connect people and content, we would like to hear from you.
We are open to contributions from people with solid and relevant ideas, including areas that may be considered ancillary or outside of Information Architecture. If selected, we simply ask that you put in the time required to create a solid and professional presentation for the conference attendees.
We encourage submissions by students, developers and designers. We are looking for work of a specialised nature, work concerning new features, design elements, methods or processes, controversial topics, and work in progress.
We are especially interested in receiving submissions from speakers in our field who have not presented at conferences in the past, including academics, professionals in related fields and information architects who have not yet had the opportunity to share their knowledge.
We want to invigorate our conference with new thoughts. If you have a solid idea and proposal, but aren't an expert speaker, we can help. Our planning committee has experienced authors and presenters who can give a hand in fine-tuning your ideas and presentations.
How do you know if you have an idea worth pursuing? Imagine that you travelled to Amsterdam to attend the conference and sat in on your presentation? Would it hold your attention? Would it give you new focus or insight that you could apply to your work? Does it provide fresh perspective to what you think? If so, great. Go ahead and send along your proposal idea. Don't be shy...
