The IA Summit is one of the most important italian events dedicated to the themes of Information Architecture, User Experience and Information Design. The 4th edition of the summit took place in Pisa on 7-8th May 2010 and was organized by Dario Betti, Andrea Resmini, Alberto Mucignat and Luca Rosati. Among the speakers of this year we can remember professionals and researchers from many fields of the IA, like: Andrew Hinton, Jason Hobbs and Federico Fasce.

I and Sara were invited to present Sketching in Audio Design, a paper describing some techniques and methodologies of sound & audio design we are experimenting with Lorelei in a project for the english studio Architects of Air. It was very interesting, because we compared our sound-oriented approach with the traditional way of thinking of user experience designers and information architects, more used to deal with textual information than audio samples. We had a lot of fun and we also won the prize for the best presentation of the summit. We want to thank all the people who appreciated and voted this work. Below there are the slides of our presentation, the video is coming, so stay tuned on this post.
