Information School iAffiliates Day 2014
Husky Union Building (HUB) at University of Washington

iAffiliates Day 2014

Please join the University of Washington Information School for our third annual iAffiliates Day, an event that fosters new partnerships and showcases innovative work at the intersection of information, technology, and people. The objective of this event is to connect iSchool faculty, PhD students and research staff with community partners in an open forum environment to explore areas of common interest and surface new ideas for collaboration. 

The "Un-conference" Concept

This participant-driven event allows for an organic process where attendees create the agenda and guide the sessions. Topics will be presented in lightening presentations delivered at the start of the unconference and will spark ideas for the subsequent sessions. The day will be structured around a series of topics related to the work at the iSchool:

  • Big data and data science
  • Digital youth
  • Information assurance and cybersecurity
  • Knowledge organization
  • Libraries and librarianship
  • Social media
  • User experience and human computer interaction (UX/HCI)
  • Women in technology

Lunch keynote by Andy Ko and Jake Wobbrock, co-founders of Qazzow, the contextual answer service that improves website and mobile conversion rates by 30% while lowering support costs and keeping visitors engaged longer.

Who Should Participate?

This event is designed to benefit users and practitioners in the broad area of information management and use.
