Join us in Los Angeles for the 20th annual Museums and the Web conference: April 6-9, 2016 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, 506 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90071, USA.
Museums and the Web is an annual conference featuring 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. The products of our meetings and conversations – the MW proceedings, Best of the Web archives and community news forum – are an unparalleled resource for museum workers, technologists, students and researchers that grows every year.
Who Comes to MW?
All kinds of people from around the world come to Museums and the Web. You will find webmasters, educators, curators, librarians, designers, managers, directors, scholars, consultants, programmers, analysts, publishers and developers from museums, galleries, libraries, science centers, and archives – as well as the companies, foundations and governments that support them – at Museums and the Web 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.
