The sixteenth international congress of the International Institute for
Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (IIC) will take place at the
Falconer Center in Copenhagen, 25-30 August 1996, in association with
the Danish National Museum.  Under the title 'Archaeological
Conservation and its Consequences' the Congress will offer new
perspectives on the conservation of archaeological sites and finds, both
on land and under water.  Particular attention will be given to ways in
which attitudes toward archaeological conservation have been reassessed
in recent years as the consequences of previous approaches have become

The Congress aims to bring together conservators and archaeologists,
conservation scientists and historians, curators, collections managers,
educators and students.  Materials under discussion will range from
ceramics to shipwrecks, from metals to mosaics and from waterlogged wood
to wall paintings and should be of interest to specialists in many
fields. The official language of the Congress will be English.

Those wishing to present a paper should submit a provisional title and a
150-word abstract by 30 April 1995.  Authors will then be invited to
submit a draft text of their full paper by 30 September 1995.  The
drafts will be reviewed by a Technical Committee, who will make a
selection of papers to be accepted for publication in the preprints and
presentation at the Congress.  Definite acceptances for the technical
program will only be made after review of the draft texts.  Proposals
are also invited for posters.  Titles and 150-word abstracts should be
submitted by 30 June 1995.  A selection of posters for presentation at
the Congress will be made by the Technical Committee.
