About MW Conferences
The MW (Museums and the Web) conferences convene annually in North America and Asia. Our meetings and proceedings feature advanced research and exemplary applications of digital practice for cultural, natural and scientific heritage. Formed by leading professionals from around the world, our community has been meeting since 1997, and recognizing the best in cultural heritage innovation through the GLAMi (formerly Best of the Web) awards annually. More than 1000 papers from the past 20 years of MW conferences are freely accessible online and offer an unparalleled resource for museum workers, technologists, students and researchers that grows every year.
The MW Program
MW offers a range of professional learning opportunities, from plenary sessions to un-conference sessions, from formal papers to informal networking, from museum project demonstrations to commercial exhibits, from professional debates to lightning talks, from how-to sessions to crit rooms and the Best of the Web awards.
Prior to the conference, there are half-day workshops and pre-conference tours.
Social events include receptions each evening, and lots of refreshment breaks provide plenty of time to meet and talk with colleagues.
