The main aim of the conference is to assess how scholarly reflection can keep pace with the rapid developments in this discipline and form its academic base.
 
Each conference day will consist of two modules – the presentation session and the expert panel:
 
I. During the presentation sessions Master’s and Doctoral students will present case studies analyses. The form suggested here deviates from a typical conference formula as the speeches will be in the form of multimedia presentations of concrete realisations of innovative exhibition solutions.
 
II. During the two expert panels the invited guests will present designs of existing and soon-to-be completed innovative museums in Poland.
 
Personnel, curators and designers of such institutions as the Galicia Jewish Museum, Malopolska Institute of Culture, Museum of the History of Polish Jews, Fryderyk Chopin Museum, Warsaw Rising Museum, Museum of Polish History, Ethnographic Museum in Krakow, Museum of Tadeusz Kantor, ‘Gate of the Battle of Warsaw 1920’ Museum, and Katyn Museum, have confirmed their attendance.
