2007 IA Progress Grant Recipients Announced

Each year the Information Architecture Institute (IAI) awards two USD 1000 Progress Grants. The purpose of the program is twofold:

  • to encourage researchers and practitioners to investigate IA-specific issues
  • to publicize useful work that furthers the information architecture body of knowledge.

The first of our 2007 Grants was awarded to Drs. Marc Resnick and Amir Abou Baker from Florida International University. Their completed research paper, "The Effect of Scent on User Recall of Web Site Navigation" can be downloaded here:

Our second 2007 Grant recipient, Andrea Resmini from the University of Bologna, is researching educational opportunities in the field of IA in Europe. To this end, Andrea and his multi-national team have arranged a retreat in Sweden, scheduled for early August. Here, educators from across Europe will gather for two days to discuss how to improved educational offerings and coordinate curricula.

Plans for a peer-reviewed journal are on the agenda at the Swedish retreat. Dr. Dorte Madsen from the Copenhagen Business School will be serving as our Editor-in-Chief. We'll keep you up-to-date as the project progresses.

The 2008 IAI Grants Committee is currently being formed. We will be accepting proposals throughout August and September, so if you would like to be considered for one of the two USD 1000 grants we award each year, check out our website for application details:
