I/O: The Museum Inside-Out/Outside-In

Conference topics 

  • Behind the scenes and transparency in the museum
  • Commons and digital collections
  • Igniting the Imagination: building communities locally and globally, on-site and online
  • Open Source, Open Content, Open Learning
  • Democratizing Access
  • User-generated and museum content: quality, trust, reputation and relevance
  • Integrated communication strategies in print and online
  • Bridging the Digital Divide


Seizing the Tiger by the Longtail Unconference

If the topic or problem you most urgently need to discuss with your peers and experts in the field is not covered by the I/O topics above, then propose an un-conference session on the MCN 2010 wiki. Members of the 2010 Program Committee will help bring together the conference's brightest and most experienced minds for your un-conference session.
