IWMW 2011 Open for Bookings
An annual event since its launch in 1997, IWMW remains of considerable interest to practitioners involved in the provision and maintenance of institutional Web management services in the UK. Its theme this year is Responding to Change and addresses the needs of such staff in their response to the changed economic circumstances we are now facing.
The event will provide a number of plenary talks which will address topics such as ways in which the impact of a variety of online services can be maximised; approaches to demonstrating value for money in the provision of such services; how analysis of activity data can help institutions enhance the services they provide to their user communities; strategies for raising the visibility of services; tools for improving user access to services; strategies for embedding Web 2.0 usage across an institution; emerging standards for addressing privacy concerns in a social web environment; and the importance of developers in exploiting the rich diversity of technologies which are available to support a spectrum of institutional needs.
As always, there will also be a range of parallel workshop sessions available to the participants which will allow topics of particular interest to be addressed in greater depth.
The IWMW event itself is responding to the changed economic climate and will be held over 2 rather than 3 days, with a reduction in the cost of attendance.
IWMW 2011 will be held at the University of Reading on 26-27 July 2011. We are looking forward to seeing previous participants as well as newcomers to the 15th event in the series.
