will be held on 7 and 8 December 2000 in Amsterdam. In anticipation
of the Dutch 'Year of the Interior' in 2001, papers are invited

conservation of complete interiors, from furniture to
wall-panelling, floors and wooden ceilings. These are often large

Comparison of the situation in various countries would be
interesting. Anyone wishing to present a paper on the conservation
and reconstruction of wooden-based interiors, on ethical questions
or on conservation research is invited to submit an abstract of
approximately 250 words, before June 1, 2000 to:
