Another meeting on university museums

One month after the UMAC (University Museums and Collections) meeting in Manchester 16-20 September—held on the theme ‘University museums and the community’ (announced here)—there is another meeting of university museums, viz., the Universeum Network Meeting in Krakow, 16-18 October 2008 on the theme ‘University museums: diversity or/and uniformity? Creating a university museum’s image’ (website here).

Both themes sound relevant, but why are there two university museum meetings just one month apart? (There may be organisational conflicts involved, which I’m not aware of). Unfortunately, I cannot attend any of them—but if someone goes, please don’t hesitate to write a review in the comment field below.
