IIC Congress 2002
"Works of Art on Paper, Books, Documents and Photographs: Techniques
and Conservation"

At the invitation of the Washington Conservation Guild, the
International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic
Works will hold its nineteenth international congress in Baltimore,
Maryland, 1-6 September 2002. The meeting will take place at the
newly opened Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel.

The subject of the conference is one which IIC has long neglected:
paper, in its broadest sense, including works of art on paper,
books, documents and photographs. Following the success of the IIC
Dublin Congress on painting techniques in 1998, we would like to
include the study of original materials and techniques of
manufacture as well as methods of restoration and conservation (in
all its aspects) of works on paper.

Papers presented at an IIC congress and published in the
contributions undergo a rigorous peer review process. Our Technical
Committee on this occasion consists of Gerhard Banik (Staatliche
Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, Stuttgart), Astrid-Christiane
Brandt-Grau (Ministere de la Culture et de la Communication, Paris),
Katsuhiko Masuda (Tokyo National Research Institute of Cultural
Properties), Debra Hess Norris (Winterthur/University of Delaware
Program in Art Conservation), Abigail Quandt (Walters Art Gallery,
Baltimore) and Helen Shenton (British Library, London). They will
review the summaries received in response to the Call for Papers and
select those authors who will be invited to submit a draft
manuscript. Then the committee will review the drafts and decide on
the contributions which will form the Technical Programme.

Further information about the congress will be available later this
year on IIC's web site at <URL:>
