Call for papers--AIC Annual Meeting

From: Rebecca Anne Rushfield <Rebecca>
Date: Wednesday, March 22, 2000
Call for papers
"State of the Art: Conservation in 2001"
General Sessions of the 29th Annual Meeting
American Institute for Conservation
May 29 - June 4, 001
Dallas TX
Deadline for submitting abstracts: August 1, 2000

The General Sessions of the AIC meeting will consist of three
half-day sessions. In the first, "Creativity and Conservation", we
will look at how radically new treatments, ways of approaching
problems, and philosophies of conservation are developed, and will
explore the personalities and environments which foster them. The
second session will be comprised of case studies on the use of new
materials and equipment in the treatment of works of art. In an
effort to strengthen the bonds between specialties, after the
individual presentations, the speakers will participate in a panel
discussion on how those techniques and materials might be used in
specialties other than the ones in which they were developed. The
third session, "Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we
going?" will provide us with the opportunity to evaluate the state
of the field in the realms of private practice, museums, and
regional centers. It will also provide a forum for the discussion of
ethical questions and historical evaluations of treatments.

The Program Committee will consider the following factors when
choosing papers for presentation: general interest for the AIC
membership, suitability for oral presentation, and quality and

Abstracts should be double spaced and no more than two
