The Information Architecture Institute
A conference on designing complex information
spaces of all kinds.
New York City, October 4 and 5, 2007

Welcome to IDEA 2007

IDEA stands for Information: Design, Experience, Access

IDEA Vision Statement

Throughout their days, people are engaging with complex information to manage their lives.

And designers now realize that information isn't simply this stuff you find - the appropriate presentation of information helps people make sense of the world around them.

This conference addresses issues of design for an always-on, always-connected world. Where "cyberspace" is a meaningless term because the online and offline worlds cannot be made distinct. Where physical spaces are so complex that detailed wayfinding is necessary to navigate them. Where work processes have become so involved, and so digitized, that we need new processes to manage those processes.

This conference brings together people who are addressing these challenges head on. Speakers from a variety of backgrounds will discuss designing complex information spaces in the physical and virtual worlds.

Additional conference information will be updated soon. Send us your email address (using the form on the right) to be notified when IDEA 2007 registration is available.
