Museum Next Conference | call for papers


Now in its fifth year MuseumNext looks to bring together the leading themes, trends and related best practice from the digital side of museums, with the aim of providing a clear insight into how technology and media are shaping today's institutions and the world.

What's next for museums? 

This year MuseumNext will focus on the theme 'What's Next' and will use this call for papers to create a programme that is structured around eight key themes.

Proposals that push the boundaries, turn convention on its head and use technology for a positive impact are encouraged. Individuals who would like to share a fifteen-minute presentation in Amsterdam are welcome to submit.

All presentations should deliver thought-provoking insight, showcase innovative ideas or projects, or share stories from which people can learn from. At the end of each session, conference delegates should be able to take away knowledge that they can apply to their own work.

Proposals should, in less than 300 words, include:

  • Title

  • Name or names of those presenting

  • Organisation

  • Key themes which your presentation relates to

  • An overview of your presentation

  • Relevant links

  • What you expect delegates to learn from your session

Deadline for submitting a proposal is November 1st 2012. An international peer panel will consider all proposals and results will be announced by December 15th 2012.

The 300-word proposal should be emailed along with the names and contact details of those who will make the presentation to proposals@museumnext.org.
