EuroIA 2017

Adaptation and designing for change


 

The EuroIA summit is Europe’s leading Information Architecture (IA) and User Experience (UX) conference. It is a unique event that brings together veteran Information Architects, experts from diverse fields practising IA, and newcomers to the practice of IA and UX design. It showcases best practices and real-world results, along with the methods used to get there. It is organised every year in September, in a different European city. EuroIA 2017, in Stockholm, will be the 13th edition. Learn more about EuroIA

Our Theme

For EuroIA 2017 we chose the theme of “Adaptation and designing for change”.

People adapt to their physical environments all the time, and those physical spaces themselves are constantly being adapted to suit peoples' changing needs.

The same is true for how we interact with information spaces.

At EuroIA 2017, we want to explore this idea of information architecture and adaptation. Both the adaptation of information spaces to peoples' continuously transforming needs, and also the changes we can influence and encourage through our designs.

Let’s not forget our need as professionals to adapt to new information technologies, as well. Our playing field is constantly in flux.

We would love to see submissions related to topics like

  • the relationship between physical architecture and information architecture
  • designing for mixed or augmented realities, and the information they hold
  • the development of resilience and antifragility in what we make
  • responsibility and ethics, and our changing role as designers and architects
  • while we think about change and adaptation, how might we consider sustainability in design?
  • the extension of this topic into organisational change by design, and where we fit in.

We encourage IA & UX practitioners and people from other fields of practice to submit, in order to give us perspective on broader meanings for adaptation and designing for change.

We hope to see you there!

Bring your talk or workshop to EuroIA 2017

The Call for Proposals will open soon, in the middle of December 2016.

The conference will focus on "Adaptation and designing for change”, so you can start thinking about what you would like to share with the IA and UX community about this theme.

We welcome submissions for both presentations and workshops, although some of the workshops will be curated by the organisers. To get an idea of the kind of talks we like to see at EuroIA, have a look at last year's programme.
