MCN '99
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
DEADLINE EXTENDED: MAY 15, 1999

The Annual Museum Computer Network Conference
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
October 27 - 30, 1999

Museums are on the verge of delivering on the promise that new media and
technology will bring their resources out of the storerooms and galleries
to an ever-expanding global audience. This conference explores how cultural
heritage institutions are succeeding in forging a more perfect union
between their traditional missions and new ways to communicate. MCN '99
offers a broad overview of opportunities, workshops for in-depth learning,
and the chance to meet the people who are creating and managing the most
innovative projects and discussing the most interesting new ideas. MCN is
dedicated to providing the tools you need to do your job, not just today
but into the 21st century. MCN '99 will offer tools-- and more--for anyone
interested in using new technologies and media to help understand and
appreciate cultural heritage collections.

Proposals may address ideas and issues in any area of computing relating to
museums or heritage. Please check the category below to indicate which

you of the 2nd Call for Papers and the Call for Paper Supplement,Call for
Paper Supplement-2, which are additional informations of the 2nd Call for

Because of the nature of MT Summit as a forum of MT researchers, users,
industrialists and funding agencies, we welcome papers, not only on
technical/theoretical issues of MT, but also on

[1] users' experiences
[2] innovative uses of MT in commercial products
[3] evaluation of actual MT systems
[4] proposal of practical uses of MT systems like controlled languages
[5] users' interactions,
