Making some of the sessions available via Webcasting would be great. This may be the only way us Canadians can particiapte!

That would be great! Living in Holland makes it hard to visit the conference ;-)

Agree with Vincent and Morag.
Would love to visit the actual event, as the information from the first one in 2008 was a great help to my internship research on handheld devices in museums.

But a webcast or short clips on YouTube would be great too!

It is now official I received the email. Looking forward to coming to the conference.
On the email it mentioned some speakers, is there a programme and a schedule? I am particularly interested in the pre-conference events, especially if you decide to do a game.
As far as the conference is concerned, I would like to hear more about issues such as way finding and orientation, which are still very much relevant but that disappeared a bit from the radar. These are important issues that concerns in particular large museums. When I was working at the BM multimedia guide this was a key issue and considering we could not rely on any location-aware technology, we had to find a creative way of doing that. I wonder how other large organizations such as LACMA, or the American Museum of Natural History, the Rijkmuseum, which have been developing multimedia guide projects in the past few years have dealt with these issues.

Other points of interest:
1) webapps versus iphone apps
2) difference between US and European markets

Looking forward to seeing you at the conference.

Scott, we've scanned and checked out the Museum Mobile wiki and cannot detect any virus activity. Can you try again?

Does anyone have recommendations on inexpensive, but not dodgy, places to stay near the Tate?

Ed there was a place by the Tate called the Southwark Rose that I think the Tate had arrangements with. Not sure if this is still in effect. My wife and I loved its location.
Have a great time!

Hopefully this won't cause too many problems, but there's probably a tube strike on Monday: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-11174556
