For more than 20 years the IA conference has been the preeminent event for practitioners and academics who confront the systemic challenge of creating and managing digital user interfaces and rich information environments. A dedicated team of volunteers from the IA community along with Kunverj produce the conference each year.

What is the virtual IAC experience like?
A conference pass to this year’s IAC gives you a 3-day, live-broadcast featuring talks, keynotes, and live Q&A sessions. In addition:
- Live broadcast and small-group discussions on Remo
- Exclusive IAC Discord server for backchannel discussions and off-hour conversations
- On-demand video library featuring pre-recorded talks. You’ll have one-year access to full recordings.
There are ample opportunities to have fun on game night, to relax in our digital lounge (hosted in remo) with other peeps, and of course, to network. That is all for you, the participant, but also think of all the new lenses and insights you can take back to your work community the next week.
Tickets to workshops are sold separately.
What is the focus of this year’s IAC?
This year’s theme is Emergence:
Now is the time to (re)emerge. We have a unique opportunity to ascend from the destruction, fear, and uncertainty of 2020 and forge a new vision for our community. Working together, we can emerge stronger, better, and more open-minded—but the prospect is risky. And success is not guaranteed.
Why Should I Attend IAC?
If you want to learn from the brightest people from the field, and want to connect with others who get excited about the art and science of organizing information and any of its meandering branches, this is the place for you.
