ZKM⎥Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, in the year of its anniversary celebration, »10 years of ZKM at Hallenbau A«, is hosting what is now the sixth MAI symposium, museums and the internet. The MAI symposium focuses thematically on new and innovative developments in the area of Internet-based museum presentations and services. A further focus is on the presentation of current information and reports about museum Internet projects, both nationally and internationally. Goal of the event series is to acquaint participants with WorldWideWeb developments decisive for museums, to give impulses and orientation for individual projects, and to encourage the participation in creating new structures. The symposium defines itself expressly as a discussion, exchange, and contact forum.
