Call for #MWA2015 proposals open

Today Museums and the Web, the largest international conference for digital innovation in the cultural sector, opened its call for proposals for its first Australian conference. Following successful Asian conferences in recent years in Hong Kong and South Korea, the conference will convene October 5-8, 2015 in Melbourne, named in 2014 as the world’s most liveable city for the fourth year in a row. Melbourne is a city with a rich cultural heritage, vibrant theatre and performing arts scene, excellent food with flavours to tempt every taste, and fascinating wildlife and natural history.

Technologists and innovators from museums, galleries, libraries, archives and related cultural heritage organizations are invited to propose their exemplary projects and leading-edge research for presentation in the MW2015 conference program from April 15 to May 15, 2015 at http://mwa2015.museumsandtheweb.com/call-for-proposals/ With a particular focus on cultural and scientific practices in Australia and the Asian region, this conference will provide a unique forum for attendees to debate the latest trends and discuss how digital technologies impact the work of cultural and educational institutions.

In addition to the conference program, innovative commercial products will be showcased in the exhibit hall; vendors and suppliers to the cultural and technology sectors are invited to express their interest in participating at http://mwa2015.museumsandtheweb.com/exhibiting/ The conference will also include social events at some of Melbourne’s premiere cultural organisations, and pre- and post-conference trips to other Australian cities.

The MW2015 call for proposals welcomes sessions and papers on all aspects of museum, gallery, library and archive practice with an emphasis on technology and innovation. The conference program, to be announced July 1, 2015, will include formal papers, workshops, demonstrations, lightning talks and forums for professional debate and collaboration. The conference program is selected by an international program committee, led by co-chairs Rich Cherry and Nancy Proctor who are joined by Tim Hart and Ely Wallis from Museums Victoria for the MWA2015 meeting.
