This year's keynote is Shari Thurow, founder and SEO director of Omni Marketing Interactive, whose talk is titled "From Information Architecture to Site Navigation: Dos and Don’ts." The conference also features 10 breakout sessions throughout the day.

Although this event typically attracts user experience design (UXD) students and professionals, the 2016 event has a broader appeal. The theme is: “Information Everywhere, Architects Everywhere.” Students, alumni and other professionals in library and information science, health informatics, knowledge management, UXD, communication studies, journalism and mass communication, visual communication design, digital sciences and related fields are encouraged to participate.

Breakfast pastries and lunch will be provided.
