Call for Papers
ICOM-CC 14th Triennial Meeting
The Hague, The Netherlands
September 10-16, 2005

In preparation for the upcoming ICOM-CC 14th Triennial Meeting,
ICOM-CC is now calling for papers and posters. We shall continue to
publish the Preprints in the usual two-volume format of
approximately 150 papers and on CD. The process for selecting papers
and posters has changed somewhat from that used in 2002.

Please take careful note of the new procedure as follows.

Each author should request an abstract template from our web site,
<URL:> or from the ICOM-CC Secretariat
secretariat [at] icom-cc__org. The abstract template consists of a 1000
word description of the proposed paper or poster and must include
the title, author and co-author's names, addresses and e-mail
addresses. It is important to note that, while the initial abstract
must be in English or French, the final paper can also be in
Spanish. Please indicate clearly which language you will use for the
final paper.

The objective of the Triennial Meeting is to present an overview of
the current state of conservation research and practice through
reports by ICOM-CC Working Groups. Special attention will be given
to problems and progress in conservation in the region hosting the

The papers and posters will be selected based on quality,
originality, importance and relevance.

The abstracts will be reviewed according to the following criteria:

    *   Relevance to the Working Group's aim and triennial program
    *   Increasing Knowledge Base of Specialization
    *   Usefulness for the field
    *   Relevance to the Plenary Session Theme "Our Cultural
        Past--Your Future"
    *   Demonstrating Collaboration between Disciplines

Completed abstract templates are to be sent to the appropriate
Working Group coordinator no later than April 15, 2004. Contact
information for Coordinators and the abstract template may be
obtained from <URL:> or from the
ICOM-CC secretariat <secretariat [at] icom-cc__org>. The Coordinators and
the Peer Review Committee will rank the abstracts and the Editorial
Committee will make their selection by June 15, 2004. Authors whose
abstracts have been chosen will then be invited to submit a full
paper or poster and will receive the 'Instructions to Authors'.

Full papers must reach the Working Group Coordinators by November 8,
2004. The Coordinators will collaborate with the authors on the
finalisation of the papers/posters, rank them and forward them to
the Peer Review Committee. Final selection of the papers will be
made by the Editorial Committee based on the rankings of the
Coordinators and Peer Review Committee in March 2005 and authors
will be notified immediately afterward. Submission of a full paper
does not guarantee acceptance. In the event of space limitations,
ICOM members are given priority in the final selection of papers of
equal quality.
