IA Summit Redux

For those who couldn't make it to this year's IA Summit, we're running a redux (or reducks) at Wayne State University. Everyone is welcome, and the panel session will be recorded and streamed. In the meantime, you can catch up via Crowdvine, Twitter, Flickr, and Slideshare. Thanks to everyone who made the 10th such a wonderful, memorable experience! See y'all next year in Phoenix!

Information Architecture Practice & Research

The 10th Annual IA Summit presents a good opportunity to revisit the relationship between practice and research, especially given the launch of the Journal of IA, and so I'm hoping to organize a flex track session (most likely on Saturday morning) to discuss challenges and to brainstorm ideas and initiatives.

Topics may include:

  • What is the real/ideal relationship between research and practice?
  • Where can practitioners and researchers collaborate?
  • When do students fit in the picture?
  • Why should we care about this topic?
  • How can ASIS&T, EuroIA, and the IA Institute contribute?
  • Who is missing from this conversation?

If you're interested in participating, let me know, and I'll ping you once we have a time and venue. And, if you have suggestions, please sound off here or there.
