Dear ASC Members,

I'm pleased to announce that the Call for
Abstracts for MA's 2012 National Conference is now open. 

The
conference theme this year is _"Research and Collections in a Connected
World"._

How can museums and galleries contribute to the needs of a
world that is awash with information but hungry for meaning? To address
this important and timely question, we will offer a diverse program of
events exploring the potential of research:

 	* ABOUT MUSEUMS: how the
process and outcomes of research can transform the social, economic and
educational role of museums in a rapidly-changing world.
 	* BY MUSEUMS:
the role of collections and curatorial expertise in understanding
current global challenges such as climate change;
 	* WITH MUSEUMS:
research collaborations with industry, academia, government and
community;

Within this overarching theme, session threads will embrace
the arts, natural history collections, heritage sites, specialist
collections, visitor research, social history, living collections,
community initiatives, digital heritage and interdisciplinary
ventures.

We look forward to staging a diverse and stimulating program,
and are encouraging voices from _OUTSIDE THE MUSEUMS SECTOR_ as well as
from within it. So even if you are not from a museum, please don't let
that be a barrier to submitting an abstract!

Further details are
available from http://www.ma2012.org.au [1]. Follow the links to
download an abstract submission form.

Call for submissions closes 27TH
APRIL 2012.

Best wishes

-- 
Regan Forrest (MA 2012 Planning
Committee)
