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 MW’s meetings and conversations – the MW proceedings, Best of the Web archives and discussion Forum – are an unparalleled resource for museum workers, technologists, students and researchers that grows every year.
The Conference explores the social, cultural, design, technological, economic, and organizational issues of culture, science and heritage on-line.
All kinds of people from around the world come to Museums and the Web: 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.
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.
