It’s ironic that in this age of social distancing the IA community has come together like never before to make IAC20 a success. We’ve drafted in more volunteers to help us plan the logistics and format for IAC20 – our first digital information architecture conference.
We’re hearing that while some of you have lots of time on your hands, others are feeling overburdened and fatigued by increased work demands. We’re trying to strike a balance with the new format that will let as many people participate as possible while reducing the amount of attention people need to devote each day. We’re very close to having the format settled. We’re trying to find a balance that will work during these unprecedented times.
So we do ask for your forbearance and forgiveness in advance. We’re all trying to adapt to a situation that’s changing daily. As the IAC team, we’re going to do our best to adapt IAC 20 to the current moment, but we won’t get it all right. Please give us the latitude to make some mistakes along the way.
That said, IAC has always been a conference by and for the IA community. You — all of you — are what has always made this conference great. We know that if you’re willing to take this crazy ride with us, we’ll figure this out and have something special to share and celebrate together.
