MW2011 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Deadline September 30, 2010

Museums and the Web 2011
the international conference for culture and heritage online
April 6-9, 2011
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Museums and the Web explores the social, cultural, design, 
technological, economic, and organizational issues of culture, science 
and heritage online. Taking an international perspective, MW reviews and 
analyzes the impacts of networked cultural, natural and scientific 
heritage. Our community has been meeting since 1997, imagining, 
tracking, analyzing, and influencing the role museums play on the Web - 
wherever the network may take us.

The MW program is built from the ground up. Proposals are invited from 
professionals and researchers in all areas actively exploring the 
creation, online presentation and use of cultural, scientific and 
heritage content, and its re-use and evaluation. There are no 
pre-defined themes -- just a strong interest in the best work out there!
