The Call for Proposals for MW18 papers, workshops, professional forums, and how-to sessions is open through September 30, 2017. You may propose demonstrations and lightning talks through December 31.
Join us in Vancouver for MW18, April 18-21, 2018! Learn about the most innovative and trend-setting projects of the year and meet international leaders in the GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) sector.
Do you have or know of an innovative project completed between April 2017 and April 2018? You can nominate it for a GLAMi award until March 11, 2018!
MW conferences do not have pre-determined themes; instead, the program is built from the ground up based on what the community proposes. You may propose a session on any topic relevant to the field. The program is selected by an international committee of cultural heritage professionals, and reflects the issues and ideas of greatest interest and urgency in each year.
Authors submitting proposals by September 30, 2017 are notified if their paper has been accepted and the draft program is announced by December 1, 2017 when registration opens. Authors proposing demonstrations and lightning talks are notified by February 1, 2018 if their proposal has been accepted. We endeavor to contact and give feedback to authors whose proposals have not been accepted as well, but due to the volume of proposals received, we cannot guarantee we’ll be able to do this in all cases.
Want to know what an MW program is made of? You can find the entire archive of past MW papers since the conference’s founding in 1997 freely available online.
Need help attending MW18? Apply for scholarships and volunteer positions by December 1, 2017.
