Call for Proposals: Museums and the Web Asia 2015 | Australia

Museums and the Web Asia 2015

The 2015 edition of the Museums and the Web Asia conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia, on 5-8 October. The event 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.

In this context, a call for proposals in a wide range of formats has been launched. Technologists and innovators from museums, galleries, libraries, archives and related cultural heritage organisations are invited to propose their exemplary projects and leading-edge research for presentation in the Museums and the Web Asia 2015 conference programme.

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.

The Museums and the Web Asia 2015 call for proposals welcomes sessions and papers on all aspects of museum, gallery, library and archive practice with an emphasis on technology and innovation.

Different types or formats of proposals are considered, including formal papers, pre-conference workshops, demonstrations, professional forums and exhibitor insights.

In most cases, proposals should be submitted by 15 May. (Update: this has been extended until 22 May)
