Looking back to IWMW 2003

May 9, 2016

I was recently approached by Brian Kelly, who runs UK Web Focus, about writing a blog item about a workshop I ran at the Institutional Web Management Workshop (IWMW) in 2003. This would form part of a series of blog posts on the conference, which has been running for almost twenty years.

After a few days of dredging memories from deep within my brain, the blog post is written and is now published on the IWMW website.

The 2003 workshop was about Web-based research expertise systems and, in particular, work I had been leading at the University of Nottingham on the East Midlands Research Expertise Database (EMRED).

It was a long time ago, and a lot has changed, both in terms of technology and in the way universities now handle their engagements with business. So it’s been a fascinating exercise to pause for a moment and look back.
