About IWMW

IWMW, the Institutional Web Management Workshop, is the premier event for the UK's higher educational web management community.

The annual 3-day event provides opportunities for those with responsibilities for managing institutional web services and related digital channels to learn from case studies, hear about innovative approaches and share and discuss challenges in managing institutional web services.

The event attracts core members of institutional Web teams such as developers, designers, content creators and managers. This year the event will also seek to attract policy makers and senior managers with responsibilities for facilitating organisational change.

Key features of IWMW events include:

  • Opportunity to hear case studies from other university web teams
  • Contributions from others outside the higher education sector
  • Workshops which enable all participants to discuss topics of interest
  • Social events which provide opportunities to chat to peers and develop professional networks

About IWMW 2016

The IWMW 2016 was held at Liverpool John Moores University on 21-23 June 2016.

The theme was "Understanding Users; Managing Change; Delivering Services".

The event was provided by Brian Kelly at UK Web Focus together with Liverpool John Moores University. Advice on the planning and delivery of the event was provided by an advisory group.

The event was a special occasion, being the 20th in the series! This event is the longest-running event for university web teams around the world!

We were particularly fortunate that the anniversary event was held in Liverpool's city centre, which was convenient for travel (by train, plane or road). We provided a special social event for delegates this year to commemorate 20 years of the UK's institutional web management community.

Costs

The cost for attendance at IWMW 2016 was £275 which covers entrance for the 3 days, lunch, tea and the conference dinner at the Merseyside Maritime Museum. Note that due to limited university accommodation the price does not include accommodation. However there are many hotels available in Liverpool, near the conference location.

We are pleased that the price was down on last year's event (which cost £300 for those requiring no accommodation).

Sponsors

The IWMW 2016 sponsors helped support the event by providing funding for social events and other activities. They also provided content at the event.
