Museums and the Web 2002: Welcome
The international conference about museums and the Web!

The seventh annual Museums and the Web conference took place March 19-22, 2003. MW2003 was the premier international venue to review the state of the Web in arts, culture, and heritage.

The formal program consisted of two plenary sessions, eighteen parallel sessions, 35 museum project demonstrations, dozens of commercial exhibits, full-day and half-day pre-conference workshops, and one-hour mini-workshops combined with a day-long usability lab, a day- long design "crit room", and the Best of the Web awards. All papers presented at MW2003 are peer reviewed. A selection are available in print from Archives & Museum Informatics.

The informal program at MW2003 included full day pre-conference tours, evening receptions each night, Birds-of-a-Feather breakfasts, and hours of discovery and debate among hundreds of colleagues from more that 35 countries.

Who Came?
Webmasters, educators, curators, librarians, designers, managers, and directors who work in museums, libraries, archives, historic sites, and the companies that support them. See the list of institutions represented at MW2003.
