Call for Papers
AICCM Textile Symposium
Binna Burra, Queensland, Australia
August 19-20, 2002

The Australian Institute (AICCM) Textile Special Interest Group is
planing its inaugural symposium, to be held over two days at
BinnaBurra Lodge, Lamington National Park, Queensland, Australia.
The symposium aims to promote a broader awareness of the variety of
work carried out by textile conservators and is aimed at the textile
conservation community in Australasia.

We are looking for papers which demonstrate the diversity of
conservation treatments carried out by textile conservators.  All
too often textile conservators feel that their work is routine
involving many standard processes.  However there is more than one
way of treating most objects and in many cases each conservator
works very differently according to their experiences and skills.
We would like papers to cover treatments, research, and related
textile conservation topics.

Papers will be 20 to 30 minutes duration and could be formal or
informal.  If you are interested in speaking at this conference then
please provide a 250 word abstract by 15 March 2002.  All
submissions should include the title of the paper, the author's
name, address, e-mail address, telephone and Fax: numbers, and a
one-paragraph biography.

Accepted papers will be published as pre-prints.

Submissions should be send to:
