Themes of the Conference
The conference will focus on the theme of “Emerging Experience”, and will
further the discussion on 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.
It’s important to reflect on how museums/galleries and visitors have been
affected from an experiential point of view: what have museums and galleries
become? And what about the role of visitors? How are meaningful and
rewarding experiences emerging in this context?

The conference will comprise of paper presentations, a workshop session 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)
