Well, we are off to the ‘I Know Where I’m Going conference on Remote access to World Heritage Sites – from St Kilda to Uluru’. This conference takes place at the Informatics Forum in Edinburgh from 23-24 November and Museums Galleries Scotland is delighted to be one of nine conference sponsors. 180 participants will be gathering to focus on the potential for new technologies to create high-quality, remote-access visitor experiences to both world heritage sites and other sites of cultural, historical and natural significance.
In the true spirit of allowing remote access there is a live video web stream at http://bit.ly/ikwig for those who can’t make this sold out conference in person. You can use the chat area to interact with other viewers and pose questions during the Q&A sessions. Sessions start at 09.30 on Wednesday so tune in for a packed and fascinating programme featuring presentations from literally across the world including a video conference session live from the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in Australia. You can also keep up via the Twitter chat using #kwig.
In the name of conference research I plan to watch ‘I Know Where I’m Going’, the Powell/Pressburger classic to which the conference title refers, excellent excuse to watch a film which has been on my must see list for ages.
