About the conference

Penn Museum, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

November 8–10, 2023

We’re thrilled to announce our first in-person conference since 2019! This year, we’re testing some new models while recalling our past. We hope you join us at Penn Museum in Philadelphia for conference sessions, networking, and open spaces for conversation and collaboration.

The conference features two days of sessions and our signature evening event—Ignite! We’re planning on creating the conference program around three tracks: Museum | Computer | Network.

  • Museum: Take a closer look at the big picture and explore how technology has impacted the field, your organization, and yourself. 
  • Computer: From IT to interactives, APIs to audio guides, share the stories behind your work with computers and offer practical advice for your peers across the sector.
  • Network: Engage in free-flowing Open Space Discussions to explore the ideas, topics, and questions you bring to the conference—you are the session creator!

If you have any conference questions or ideas, please reach out to us by emailing [email protected].
