World IA Day is a one-day, annual celebration focused on the practice and education of Information Architecture. This year we celebrate on February 20th, 2016.
Our celebration brings together a diverse community including information architects, user experience designers, content strategists, product managers, developers, scholars, and students. We come together to talk about and shape the future of Information Architecture.
We value sharing information, ideas, and research to deepen and expand the understanding of Information Architecture. We seek to share scholarship and experiences.
2016 marks the fifth year in which we come together as an international community to celebrate Information Architecture. Events often feature speakers and workshops, along with other educational activities to re-energize audiences and help them get excited about their work.
World IA Day is a global event. This year it will be held in 74 cities across 39 countries on 6 continents. Most events are free, while some might charge a nominal registration fee depending on the scope of their offerings.
People may attend an event in-person or remotely. Companies may sponsor an event with a financial or in-kind donation.
