UK Museums on the Web 2009: The everyday web: situated, sensory, social

Hochhauser Auditorium, Sackler Centre, V&A, London

Fully booked!

For over five years the annual UKMW conferences have been the place for high quality presentations and discussions on the matters that are shaping museums online today.


The Sackler Centre

By remaining in touch with the leading edge of research, the politics of policy, as well as the day-to-day realities of professional work, UKMW continues to appeal to practitioners and academics, technologists and curators, policy makers and the commercial sector. And the event has built a reputation for the caliber of its speakers, the accessibility of its content, and the focus of its debate.

As museums’ activity online continues to be drawn into the power and possibility of the social Web (of networking and user-generated content) and the machine Web (of semantics and APIs), this year’s conference takes us back to the everyday, sensory and ubiquitous experience and encounters of online content.

Today, the Web is becoming increasingly a more multi-sensory place, with new visual interfaces, rich sound content, where content can adapt to our physical location, and even where interactions can be triggered by bodily movement. Likewise, software and services (just like our content) can today move with us.

This year UKMW will look at digital heritage in the everyday – situated, sensory, social.
