Jul 22, 2005: IA-Friendly Events and More

It's summer cleaning time for my "to blog" folder; some of these might belong on your radar:

  • Taxonomy Community of Practice (Seth Earley)
    Seth runs these meetings via a monthly conference call, and I've heard great things about them. Next one ("Best Practices in Taxonomy Deployment") is Wednesday, July 27, 2005, 2pm EDT. Margie Hlava of Access Innovations, Theresa Regli of Molecular and Seth will lead the discussion and hold a "taxonomy clinic" with Tom Vaughn of FreddieMac. more info
  • European IA Summit--CFP (ASIS&T)
    "The first European Information Architecture (IA) Summit's focus is on building the IA community in Europe. The objective of the event is to bring together a number of disciplines and practitioner communities by providing a stimulating environment for debate and an opportunity for establishing cooperation." The Summit takes place October 15-16, 2005 in Brussels; papers are due July 31. more info
  • DUX 2005
    Designing User Experiences 2005 is scheduled for November 3-5, 2005, in San Francisco, California. I enjoyed the first edition back in 2003, and I guess I ought to go again, as this UX stuff seems pretty cool. more info
  • New Challenges in Information Architecture (IAI)
    Anders Ramsay is putting together a great retreat in the suburbs of New York City this fall (October 7-9, 205); space is limited. The last retreat--held in Germany last May--was apparently quite a hit. more info
  • Journal of Usability Studies (UPA)
    Starting up in Q4 of 2005, this "publication will be a peer-reviewed, on-line journal dedicated to promoting and enhancing the practice, research, and education of usability engineering." Kinda neat, UPA doing peer-reviewed stuff. I wonder how the folks at SIGCHI feel about this? ;-) more info
  • Information Architecture Book Group (Matthew Goddard)
    Matthew Goddard is running The IA Book Group, "a virtual book group for people interested in the User Experience (UX) disciplines." While I'd gripe that IA and UX are not the same thing, I'm glad Matthew's taking this on; sounds like a great idea. more info
  • IAI Mentoring Program (IAI)
    An update: "Now, any IAI member interested in finding a mentor can view available mentors online. Rather than waiting for us to 'pair' you up, you can learn about IAI members who have volunteered to mentor, and pick out one appropriate for you." more info
