There are two main themes to this conference--the history of
conservation and the future practice of conservation.

The 'history' papers will explore the careers of important and
influential conservators, record the history of conservation in a
number of institutions around the world, or examine the history of
of certain conservation techniques. In the main, the period covered
stops in the mid 20th century.

'Future practice' is about the challenges that the conservation
profession has to face in the 21st century.

32 papers will be presented.
