MWXX draft program announced

The 20th Annual Conference of Museums and the Web will be held April 6-9, 2016 in Los Angeles, California at the Biltmore Hotel. 

The MWXX draft program has been published and features speakers from around the world, presenting their latest work and research findings. Proposals were peer-reviewed by an International Program Committee in a very competitive process.

The preliminary program includes confirmed presentations in blue/black and tentative presentations in grey. Please check the program frequently for updates.

We are still accepting proposals for demos, lighting talks, and exhibitor briefings until Dec 31, 2015. If your initial proposal was not included in the draft program published on Dec 1, feel free to resubmit your topic if it also suits one of these other formats. Please submit your proposals here.
