The 8th ICOM-CC WOAM meeting will be held on the 11th -15th of June

The program will consist of four days of presentations followed by a

reception at the City Hall and an extraordinary visit to the Vasa
museum with an unique chance to go onboard the ship. The excursion
will be a day-trip by boat through the archipelago of Stockholm
followed by dinner  on one of the islands.

The conference fee is 1200 Swedish crowns

The last day for the preliminary registration is the 31st of October

Please Note: Sweden will be chair for the EU proceedings during the
first half of 2001 which means that many of the hotels in Sweden

therefore recommended that you apply as soon as possible in order to
find reasonably priced accommodations.

The official conference language will be English.
