"The IA Slam is a role-playing workshop in which an entire client engagement is compressed into 45 minutes.
We divide the room into teams, present them with a problem, work with them as they develop their solutions, and name a winner, awarding medals to the team in a ceremony the following day.
We need a 2.5-hour slot to accomplish this feat to accommodate the time needed for the introduction of the game, the presentation of the problem, the time for participants to develop a solution, and the presentation of team solutions.
We do not reveal the details of the story behind the problem until the day of the event. We have always worked to keep the problems relevant, broadly inapplicable, and appropriate for a conference setting and will continue to do so for this year's slam."
