Friday, April 15, 2005

The middle day of the MW2005 conference offers something for everyone. The Exhibit Hall is open all day, offering a chance to review technologies and services that will help you build your museum's Web presence. Mini-workshops, Professional Fora and Information Sessions throughout the day address focussed topics. The Crit Room offers live critique of museum Web design, and the Usability Lab illustrates methods of evaluating your Web site from a user's perspective, quickly and efficiently. Friday closes with the Conference Reception and Vancouver Harbour Cruise, on board Britannia.

Saturday, April 16, 2005

The final day of MW2005 begins with Demonstrations of Web sites by museum professionals. Two Demonstration sessions, one right after the other, provide a great chance to see museum Web sites up close and ask questions about their goals, objectives and methods. Concurrent sessions on a theme follow. MW2005 wraps with a Closing Plenary.
