World Information Architecture Day


One Day Full of IA

World IA Day is about bringing the information architecture community together. We're fostering links within the local communities and on a global scale. We're sharing information, ideas, and research. And we're doing it through unconventional, exciting, and engaging IA events this February.

On February 15, 2014 you can learn from world-class IA minds, network with your peers, showcase new ideas, and attend events tailored specifically to your community. We hope you'll join us at an event near you!

This 3rd annual World IA Day is not-for-profit. It's run entirely by volunteers and funded largely by gracious sponsors.

Many Locations, One Theme

World IA Day 2014 will discuss how we can use IA thinking to make the world a better place. While this may sound idealistic, we think it will inspire speakers to take both the academic and business-centric ideas of our industry to push the boundaries of what we can achieve through IA. Making the case to ourselves, traditional business, and all others, of IA’s ability to make positive change.
