Time to throw down the oven glove in MW2014’s Mobile Bake-off!

Have you developed a mobile tour authoring platform for museums and cultural organizations?
Would you like to show off its advantages and unique features to hundreds of leading museum technologies and mobile experts?

If so, you’re invited to participate in the MW2014 “Mobile Bake-off.” Using a core of mobile content provided to all participating mobile providers, create a short (5 stop min.) tour of Baltimore’s cultural highlights on your platform and make it available to conference attendees by April 1 for use during the pre-conference tours and throughout MW2014. Then attend the special “Mobile Tasting” session from 10am-12pm on April 4 to demo your tour and the Content Management System and Platform that produced it. Your work will be discussed by a panel of mobile experts with questions and contributions from the audience.

The aim of the “Bake-off” and “Tasting” session is to give museum professionals an opportunity to understand the strengths and affordances of a range of mobile tour authoring platforms available to them, and to enable mobile providers to hear directly from museums about the kinds of experiences and content they want to offer their mobile users.

To join us, simply:

– Register to attend MW2014: http://mw2014.museumsandtheweb.com/registration

– Submit a short description of your intended demo by 28 Feb 2014: http://mw2014.museumsandtheweb.com/submit-proposal

Further details on getting the common demo content and more will then be provided to you directly.

We look forward to mobilizing with you in Baltimore!
