Call For Papers

The North American Textile Conservation Conference in 2002 will
focus on the role of scientific analysis as a means of expanding our
knowledge of textile history and conservation practices.  Our goal
is to present a broad spectrum of information ranging from projects
using low-tech inexpensive techniques to those involving
instrumental analysis. Submissions are requested from scientists,
curators, and conservators on topics that may include but are not
limited to:  identification of materials (fiber, dyes, finishes,
etc.); textile technology and manufacturing; evaluation of
conservation materials or techniques, past, present and/or under
development;  dating and attribution; and, case histories of
collaboration between scientists, textile curators and/or

Papers are also solicited for a session on new developments in the
field of textile conservation, which need not be relevant to the
main conference theme.

Abstracts (up to 250 words) describing the project, research, and
results or anticipated results must be submitted by June 1, 2001.
All submissions should also include  the title of the submission,
the author's name, address, e-mail address, telephone and Fax:
numbers, and a one-paragraph biography.  Accepted papers will be
published by NATCC as pre-prints.

Proposals for posters should also be submitted by this date. e-mail
submission are encouraged, paper submissions will be given equal
consideration. Send/e-mail to:
