SSCR Conference 1998
"Site Effects:
The Impact of Location on Conservation Treatments"
To be held at the Burrell Collection, Glasgow, Scotland,UK
5-6 May 1998

Papers are now invited for the 1998 SSCR Conference "Site Effects:
The Impact of Location on Conservation Treatments."  Where objects
are site specific ( eg standing stones, buildings, building features
or fittings ) the treatment of these objects often has to be adapted
to allow for the effects of the location.  In many cases,
conservators have to work with other professionals eg curators,
architects, historians, archaeologists, enengineers, planners or
designers, to achieve a satisfactory result. The conference aims to
explore both the ways treatments are adapted and relationships with
other professions and, from this, to increase the understanding of
the professional requirements of the different people involved.
Papers can examine these questions in a general and abstract way, or
can relate them to past,present and future conservation projects.
Topics may include:

    archaelogical and historic sites, eg landscapes and gardens;

    buildings, both outer and inner structures;

    fixed features eg wallpaper, stained glass, outdoor sculpture,
    architectural features;

    moveable objects which have to be in a specific place.

Papers will be published in SSCR pre-prints.

Abstracts ( 300-400 words) should be submitted by 1 April 1997 to
