MCN Conference 2012
Van 7 t/m 10 november 2012 vindt de 40e jaarlijkse internationale conferentie Museum Computer Network (MCN) plaats. Dit jaar in Seattle (USA). Het thema: ' The Museum Unbound: Shifting Perspectives, Evolving Spaces, Disruptive Technologies’. De voertaal is Engels.
“The annual Museum Computer Network (MCN) conference brings together a diverse community of museum professionals interested in using technology to improve their organizations and enhance the visitor experience. It is not a conference purely for technologists – it’s for anyone who wants to explore exciting opportunities—and tackle the unique challenges—associated with using technology in cultural organizations.
This year’s theme, “The Museum Unbound: Shifting Perspectives, Evolving Spaces, Disruptive Technologies”, focuses on exploring how the quickening pace of technological innovation is expanding the very definition of what it means to be a museum.
MCN Seattle will feature a newly expanded program with a diverse set of offerings. The conference will kick off with ‘Ignite MCN’, a fast-paced and provocative idea forum. Supporting the innovation theme, the program will also feature a full set of ‘Maker’ hardware-hacking activities and a revamped un-conference program. These new activities will work hand-in-hand with the main program’s set of excellent workshops, sessions, and roundtables, providing attendees with many ways of exchanging ideas, interacting with peer professionals and learning new skills.
Whether you are a seasoned technology professional, high-level manager, or just want to be more familiar with industry trends, the MCN 2012 conference program has something for everyone. The conference will not only broaden your skills and your perspective on museum technology, it is also the perfect place to meet leaders in the field and join a generous community willing to help you get to that next step. MCN Seattle promises to be an inspiring and energetic gathering.
