IWMW 2012: the Resources
Did you miss out on IWMW 2012? Or perhaps you want to listen to the plenary talks again or share them with your colleagues? We're please to report that a page containing links to the key resources is now available including a page containing links to video recording of the plenary talks.
The IWMW 2012 event took place at the University of Edinburgh on 18-20 June 2012. There were a total of 172 registered delegates, together with a remote audience who watched a live video stream of all the plenary talks. A summary of the event evaluation is available.
Note that since we returned to a 3-day format we were able to provide a comprehensive series of talks and workshop sessions. There were eleven plenary talks and 19 workshop sessions, from which delegates were able to choose three. We also ran a session on "New to the Sector? New to Web Management? New to IWMW?" which provided orientation for those who had not attended the event previously or were new to the sector or the community. We continued to provide social events which provided an opportunity for informal discussions and networking. In addition to the event dinner we also had a wine reception at Our Dynamic Earth.
About the IWMW Event
The Institutional Web Management Workshop (IWMW) event provides an opportunity for those involved in the provision of institutional Web services to hear about institutional case studies, national initiatives and emerging technologies and to actively participate in a number of parallel sessions.
The IWMW series of events was launched by UKOLN in 1997 and has been held annually ever since, providing those involved in the provision of institutional Web management services with an opportunity to update their skills and share their experiences with their peers.
