Re-Thinking Technology in Museums: Emerging Experience will explore novel approaches for understanding people's experiences in museums and galleries, and for designing interactive technologies to support these experiences. In recent years, the increased presence of mobile smart appliances such as smart phones, and the growth of social media and social networks have impacted on the strategies deployed by museums and exhibition sites to invite, engage and connect with visitors and stakeholders.
The conference will comprise paper presentations, a workshop session on Irish Museums & Technology: Ideals & Realities hosted by the Irish Museums Association and an "Innovation Forum" featuring industry projects organised by IxDA Limerick. We want this event to be as inclusive as possible with an affordable registration fee of €130 ( that includes access to workshop and all conference sessions, industry showcase, refreshments, copy of the book of proceedings and Conference Banquet at Thomond Park Stadium)
