The Object in Context: Crossing Conservation Boundaries

The deadline for the early bird reduction on booking fees for the
IIC 2006  Munich Congress is approaching, so now is the time to
book. On 1 July 2006 the early bird prices will rise by 20%. Booking
is already popular for what will be a varied, informative and
valuable conference, many being attracted by the breadth and variety
of topics that the congress' title is making available. Much
interest is also being generated by the linked Wissensspeicher
events <URL:>.

"Wissensspeicher: Conservation, Restoration and Research in Munich"
is the unique joint programme of linked events that allows a number
of cultural institutions in Munich to show their work and  interest
in preserving and understanding cultural heritage and bringing this
to a wider public. Full details can be found at
<URL:> and

Provisional Congress Programme

The programme of papers and speakers is listed below. Please note
