Want to speak at London IA?
We are planning to kick off 2012 with a different format for January’s London IA event - we’d like an evening of four talks, no more than fifteen minutes each, on a varied diet of topics. As Matthew has put it:
“There are no direct guidelines on subject matter apart from not being constrained by the letters ‘IA’ or ‘UX’. Priority will be given to people who haven’t spoken at London IA before (though previous speakers are not ruled out) and if you are not successful on this occasion don’t be too disappointed as if the evening goes well we will certainly run this format again at another point in 2012”
If you are interested, then send an outline of the presentation and a brief bio to email (at) london (dash) ia (dot) com by midnight on 1 December 2011.
And one way of looking at it is this: if you are speaking, you are guaranteed a ticket...
“London IA: Notes from the talks”
Martin Belam, foreword by Ann McMeekin Carrier
London IA is a network of designers, information architects and thinkers. Since 2009 the group has been holding regular meetings featuring talks about UX, or of interest to UXers. This ebook is a compilation of my notes from those evenings, featuring talks by Andy Budd, Giles Colborne, Cennydd Bowles, Claire Rowland, Jason Mesut, Ben Bashford, Chris Heathcote, Dan Lockton, Relly Annett-Baker, Michael Blastland, Margaret Hanley and Richard Rutter amongst others. Topics covered range from ubicomp to psychology, from learning how to sketchnote to how to write a UX book, and how to improve digital design through diverse routes like copy-writing, designing for doubt, learning from music technology or taking care of typography.
“London IA: Notes from the talks” is available for Kindle for £2.47.
