We're very excited to feature two brief talks from local search experts Ruth Burr of SEOMoz and Ian Lurie of Portent.
They'll be speaking about the relationship of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to Information Architecture and User Experience. So much of our work in IA & UX is about collaboration across departments and teams, so we invited people who really know SEO to speak directly to cross-discipline team work.
