In 2012, the Information Architecture Institute launched World AI Day - an annual, one-day event to unite professionals and enthusiasts alike with the goal of practicing, teaching and shaping the future of information architecture. This year, World IA Day events will occur at 56 locations, in 25 countries, across 5 continents.

Each event is unique. A theme is provided so the global discussion is aligned, but the form each event takes is up to those running it. Whether they choose to make it a networking event, a design slam, traditional conference or hybrid of everything in between, each event is a creative experience intended to promote collaboration and information sharing across the community.

Rocketeer, Information Architect and Strategist, Adam Polansky, will be presenting at the Austin event this year - and you won't want to miss it.

Visit the World IA Day website for more information about the event and it's purpose.
