What is Museums and the Web? The official description:
Museums and the Web is an annual conference exploring the social, cultural, design, technological, economic, and organizational issues of culture, science and heritage on-line. Taking an international perspective, MW reviews and analyzes the issues and impacts of networked cultural, natural and scientific heritage.
It is the biggest Museums conference of its kind in the world, attracting up to 600 professionals from 25 countries.
DOV also contributed to the conference – a demonstration – and a paper. Thank you Prof. Jonathan Bowen and Alison Liu for co-authoring the paper, and helping out with the demo. It was Jonathan who nominated DOV for the Best of the Web competition.
DOV, created and run by a fantastic team of Friends of Dulwich Picture Gallery is now internationally recognised. Congratulations to everyone who put in so much work to support their beloved Dulwich Picture Gallery!
