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!

The bibliography of past MW papers (all online since 1997) can be searched at

All full texts are freely available online.

Please co-ordinate your proposals with your collaborators. Multiple proposals about the same project will not be successful.

Proposals are peer-reviewed individually by an International Program Committee. Note that proposals for full sessions are rarely accepted.

Proposals for sessions should be submitted as individual papers with a covering note. The committee may choose to accept some papers and not others.


MW sessions vary in format - from formal Papers to informal Birds of a Feather lunches, and from structured Professional Forums to timely Unconference Sessions. Find the best format for your idea, by reviewing the session formats at
