MW2010 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Deadline September 30, 2009

    Museums and the Web 2010
    the international conference for culture and heritage on-line
    April 13-17, 2010
    Denver, Colorado, USA
    http://www.archimuse.com/mw2010/

Museums and the Web explores the social, cultural, design, 
technological, economic, and organizational issues of culture, 
science and heritage on-line. Taking an international perspective, 
MW reviews and analyzes the issues and 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.

* CALL FOR PARTICIPATION *
Proposals are invited from professionals and researchers in all areas 
actively exploring the creation, on-line presentation and use of 
cultural, scientific and heritage content, and its re-use and 
evaluation.

The bibliography of past MW papers (all on-line since 1997) can be 
searched at http://conference.archimuse.com/researchForum/

* PROPOSAL FORM *

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