Calling UX Freelancers!

For those of you who are still available I am looking for a Senior User
Experience Architect to work on a project involving a large mobile phone
retailer (working on client-site) for an Agency. 

The project will involve carrying out the interaction design across mobile
and tablet platforms. You will also interface directly with stakeholders to
translate the requirements into design concepts.

In terms of personality type, I am looking for someone who has gravitas and
who is persuasive. As in many corporations stakeholders do not always
communicate with each-other and the environment can feel somewhat chaotic.
You must be able to navigate the politics and consult the stakeholders on
why/what/how the interaction design should be carried out. 

Start date: Immediate

Duration: 3 months

Rate: up to £500 per day

[Sigia-l] CfP: workshop on architectures of meaning

* apologies for cross-posting

Call for Workshop Papers

Pervasive Information Architectures as Architectures of Meaning for
Complex Cross-channel Systems

Workshop at the 10th International Conference on Pervasive Computing
(Pervasive 2012)

June 18, 2012, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

This workshop will reflect on how the practice of information
architecture (IA) as “the structural design of shared information
environments” has been changing in the past few years under the influx
of media convergence and ubiquitous and pervasive computing, outline how
IA is uniquely positioned to help improve the design of successful user
experiences and customer journeys in pervasive, cross-channel
environments, move the discourse on IA towards indeterminate problem
solving, and help establish a common language and grammar for both
practice and research in the field.

The goals of the workshop are: 1) to reframe information architecture
and its role as the enabling layer for pervasive systems where
information permeates physical space and products become cross-channel
services; 2) to tackle established problems within the field with a
multi-disciplinary perspective centered on indeterminate problem
solving; 3) to identify new directions of research in this specific area
which might advance both the theory and practice of information
architecture in pervasive information spaces; 4) to promote the shared
