XXIV ICOMON CONFERENCE 2017
Hosted by Bank Indonesia
3-6 September 2017
First Announcement and Call for Papers
"Money and Banking Museums: from display to engagement"
In this decade, museums are not merely a place for displaying information about the history, heritage, historical objects, and conducting education programmes, but the function of museums are transforming to become the strategic communication for institutions taking care of museums. This strategic function of museums is expected to bridge between an interest of the institution in accomplishing its mission to educate the public about the history of the institution, history of the policies and the current policies issued by the institutions, and the interest of the public to gain the knowledge.
It is therefore this Conference is arranged to encourage interactive discussions amongst participants upon the above theme. Participants are expected to deliver presentation on how the transformation of the museum takes place whilst accomplishing its mission to educate the public, how the museum serves its function as a communication tool for an institution, and how the museum responds the challenges encountered for the future development, and what strategy the museum applies in utilising state-of-the-art of technology.
In preparing the call for papers, participants may select one of several below topics :
- Museum as tools for communicating concepts and policies
- Creating displays which educate the public about numismatic and financial concepts
- Incorporating technology within numismatic museums
Participants who are interested in delivering presentations are invited to prepare a 20-minute presentation and send the material for presentation in the form of powerpoint no later than 30 June 2017. Prior to this, participants are expected to send a short abstract of maximum 300 words before 30 March 2017 including : title, author(s) names, institution postal address and email address to: ICOMON2017@bi.go.id .
