Our call for proposals is now open until September 22nd.
Share your expertise with the world. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first time speaker, we want to hear from you!
IAC is a leading information architecture conference where information architects, UX designers, content strategists, taxonomists and other design practitioners meet to talk about understanding, organizing, and communicating information. Submit a proposal to share your ideas with the community.
There are different ways for you to present at IAC:
While we presume that many of you have great “traditional” talk ideas (and we want to hear about those!), we encourage you to also submit ideas for different types of sessions that fit the given time slots. A rapid-fire game show in 20 minutes? Sounds good to us!
20-minute session. A 20-minute session works well for a big idea in its most compact form.
45-minute session. A 45-minute session works well for complex idea that needs the extra examples or detail to be understood, or for duo and trio sessions.
Poster. Poster Night has become a favorite fixture of IAC. Prepare a poster to structure your story, model, or advice, then chat with attendees about it during our evening reception on the conference’s first night. Posters are great for getting to know the community, especially for first-time presenters. Assume that you’ll be giving repeated short introductions and also engaging in natural conversations about your topic. We are not yet accepting submissions from potential poster presenters. There will be a separate call-for-submissions for poster presenters later this year; please ensure you’re on our email list to be notified when we begin accepting these submissions.
Pre-conference workshop. We will host two days of workshops before the main conference begins. You can submit a proposal to lead a full-day or half-day workshop. Participants pay an additional fee to attend workshops – with any profits split between the facilitator and the remainder subsidising the conference.
