Preconference presented by Maya Design October 6, 2008

Throughout their days, people are engaging with complex information to manage their lives. Designers now realize that information isn't simply this stuff you find -- the appropriate presentation of information helps people make sense of the world around them.

The IDEA Conference addresses issues of design for an always-on, always-connected world. Where "cyberspace" is a meaningless term because the online and offline worlds cannot be made distinct. Where physical spaces are so complex that detailed wayfinding is necessary to navigate them. Where work processes have become so involved, and so digitized, that we need new processes to manage those processes.

Bringing together people who are addressing these challenges head on, the IDEA features speakers from a variety of backgrounds to discuss designing complex information spaces in the physical and virtual worlds.
