Join MW’s Nancy Proctor and guest co-chair Sina Bahram for a live Twitter chat on Wednesday, September 20 at 12:00 noon (EDT).
Nancy and Sina will help you formulate or refine your MW proposal, think about accessibility in your findings and presentation, point you to relevant past research, and connect you with others who may be working on similar topics.
Don’t have a topic in mind yet? No worries. Follow along @MuseWeb on Twitter and the #AskMW18 hashtag to be inspired or throw out a few questions about some of your ideas!
The Call for Proposals for MW18 papers, workshops, professional forums, and how-to sessions is open on the MW18 website through September 30, 2017. Proposals for demonstrations and lightning talks will be accepted through December 31.
MW conferences do not have pre-determined themes; instead, the program is built from the ground up based on what the community proposes. You can 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 by December 1, 2017 when the draft program is announced and 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.
You can find the entire archive of past MW papers since the conference’s founding in 1997 freely available online.
