Call For Papers--Polymers in Museums

From: Mary T. Baker <mtb>
Date: Wednesday, April 8, 1998
Final call for papers for "Polymers in Museums", a symposium at the
American Chemical Society meeting in Boston, MA, August 23-27, 1998.

Papers on the general topic of deterioration or preservation of
polymeric materials (particularly synthetic polymers) in museum
objects or studies on the use of synthetic polymers in conservation
of museum objects are being accepted to fill remaining openings in
the symposium.

Authors must submit a short abstract and an extended abstract
(2-page preprint) by Friday, May 1.  The short abstract template is
available at <URL:>
(MS Word only) and the preprint form is available at
<URL:> (MS Word and
WordPerfect).  Both preprint and abstract will be submitted
electronically; those needing help with these formats should contact
the organizer at the address below.

Presentations will be about 30 minutes; papers should be new
material, although it is acceptable to include material that is in
press,  recently published in longer articles or previously
published in non-scientific journals.  Authors retain the right to
use the preprint material in future articles.

Titles should be sent for approval before preparing the final paper.
Titles, questions, requests, should be sent to:
