        Subject: Call for Papers for UK Museums on the Web, 30 November 2012, London

In the interests of creating more productive links and
knowledge-sharing between museums and the digital humanities, I'd like
to share this Call for Papers with the Humanist list.  There is also a
collaboratively edited document discussing other opportunities for
links between memory institutions and digital humanists at

The Committee of the Museums Computer Group is excited to announce
that our annual conference Museums on the Web – UKMW12 – will be held
at the Wellcome Collection in London on Friday 30th November 2012.

The theme for UKMW12 is ‘strategically digital’. The conference will
be an opportunity to take a step back from the everyday and think
strategically about the impact of the digital revolution on your
museum and on the sector as a whole. As always, UK Museums on the Web
is a day for being inspired by the latest ideas, for learning from
case studies grounded in organisations like yours, and for networking
with other technologists, curators, managers, learning and marketing
specialists in the museum and heritage sector.

We are interested in proposals on topics such as:
  * Digitally enabling the modern museum and its staff;
  * Sustaining the digital agenda and the realities of digital
strategies and organisational change;
  * The complexities of digital engagement and the impact of social
media on audience expectations;
  * Relevant case studies that situate digital projects within
organisational strategic objectives, or papers that draw actionable
lessons from an overview of the national and international heritage

If you would like to propose a paper for one of these themes, please
emailcontact at museumscomputergroup.org.uk by 12 October 2012 with the
following information:
  * Your name
  * The organisation you work for (if applicable)
  * The title of your paper
  * A 200-word summary of what your paper will cover
  * How your paper relates to the themeLinks to any online videos,
slides or reports from previous talks that give a sense of your
presentation style
  * Have you given this paper or talked about this project at a
previous conference? If so, which conference and when?

The UKMW12 Programme Committee will aim to make a decision on the
Programme by 19th October 2012.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us via twitter (@ukmcg),
contact at museumscomputergroup.org.uk or comment at
http://bit.ly/UKMWCfP if you have any questions or comments.

We look forward to reading your proposals.

Cheers, Mia
(as MCG Chair)
