The MW Program

MW offers a range of professional learning opportunities, from plenary sessions to un-conference sessions, from formal papers to informal networking, from museum project demonstrations to commercial exhibits, from professional debates to lightning talks, from how-to sessions to crit rooms and the Best of the Web awards. Prior to the conference, there are half-day workshops and pre-conference tours. Social events include receptions each evening, and lots of refreshment breaks provide plenty of time to meet and talk with colleagues.
