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.

I am interested but out of curiosity, if I decide to sign up to become
an IAI member soon would that give me the member price? how long is
the membership process?

Also, I am very interested in the conference. But if you could
explain in a bit more detail it would be appreciated. I lived in
Chicago for a while but I can't exactly recall where the Library is
that this event will be held. I imagine close to downtown?

With that said are there any hotels near the venue that will have
special rates for this, or a particular hotel for conference specific
socializing / after party activities? If so it would be beneficial to
know this kind of information in advance. I haven't had time to
scour the actual site yet, I just figured you might have more
insight. Thanks.
