The way we find information, the devices and interfaces we use to find it, and the methods behind it all create frustration, joy, and affect the lives of everyone we know.

The IA Summit is the premiere, community-curated, and volunteer-run gathering on the ever-evolving disciplines of information architecture and experience design. It provides students, practitioners, and anyone interested with great tactical skills, amazing inspiring ideas, and an opportunity to collaborate and celebrate the great things happening in our communities of practice.
