• Sessions on the 7th & 8th  will be held at Daejeon Convention Center (DCC).  Receptions will be held at the National Science Museum and the Lee Ungno Museum of Art.
• October 9, there will be a tour from Daejeon to Seoul which will visit:
• Namjun Paik Art center
• National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, and
• Leeum Samsung Museum
• October 10, workshops will be held at EWHA Womens University in Seoul

You can submit a proposal through July 31st

There are many ways to participate in Museums and the Web Asia:
• Offer a Workshop: Are you an expert in your field? Share your expertise by leading a half-day or full-day pre-conference workshop! Workshops are held the day before the conference begins and workshop leaders are compensated for their teaching. No written paper is required.
• Present a Formal Paper: Share your leading work in the field through a written paper (required, up to 5,000 words) and an oral presentation in a conference session (approx. 20 min. plus discussion). All formal papers are published on the Museums and the Web site, and selected papers are published in the eBook and printed proceedings of the conference.
• Teach a How-to Session (a one-hour workshop): You have one hour to demonstrate and teach a practical skill or best practices for a museum topic. A written version of your session (required, up to 2,500 words) will be published on the Museums and the Web site to serve as an on-going reference both for attendees of your session and others.
• Demonstrate your project and explain the designs and the decisions that went into it to colleagues in an exhibit-booth setting. Demonstrations are only open to museum professionals and projects created in a non-profit environment. Commercial organizations are invited to demonstrate their products and projects in Exhibitor Insights.
• Give a Lightning Talk, Pecha Kucha-style, in a 1.5 hour session that includes 6 lightning talks of 7 minutes each plus plenty of time for questions and discussion. Slides and recordings of the lightning talks will be published online, and presenters are invited to blog about their topics (up to 1,000 words) on the MWA site.
• Exhibit your commercial products and services in the Exhibit Hall (we have a very limited amount of slots for this and space will be assigned first come first serve) and as an exhibitor and vendor to museums, share your Exhibitor Insights on recent projects, new commercial products and best practices learned from working with organizations across the museum field and beyond. We are looking for engaging and innovative formats for the Exhibitor Insights, including “pechu kucha” style “parades”, short workshops, and expert panels: send us suggestions for your presentation!
• Be there: the best part of MWA is always meeting informally with some of the most creative and innovative museum professionals from around the world and enjoying the warmth and generosity of this community. Join us!
Local tours? Performances? Hack-a-thons? Maker Faires? Other interactions or services? Propose any other format of participation + explain how it works. We’re always open to new ideas.
