Date: Friday, October 22, 1999
Symposium 2000
The Conservation of Heritage Interiors
May 17 to 20, 2000

Symposium 2000 will emphasize the kinds of professional
collaboration required to plan and execute successful conservation
projects in historic interior spaces. This international symposium,
organized by the Canadian Conservation Institute in collaboration
with the Association for Preservation Technology (APT) and the
Heritage Conservation Program of Public Works and Government
Services Canada, will offer a chance to share information about
current examination and treatment practices, problems and solutions
in project management, and the innovative use of materials that will
benefit those who are responsible for the preservation and
rehabilitation of heritage interiors. Participation is encouraged
from professional conservators, preservation architects,
conservation scientists, craft and trades people, engineers,
technicians, and designers in heritage preservation.

Check-in will take place at the National Gallery of Canada on the
evening of May 17th, with papers presented the following three days.
Simultaneous translation to English or French will be available.
Preprints, receptions, a banquet, and tours of conservation projects
of heritage interiors will all be part of your symposium experience.
