Paintings Specialty Group Call
AIC Annual Meeting April 2007

The Paintings Specialty Group of the American Institute for
Conservation is calling for papers for the Annual Meeting, scheduled
for April 2007.

Due to the earlier scheduling of the Annual Meeting the deadline for
titles and abstracts is September 1, 2006  We recognize that this
deadline is very early and encourage people to consider submitting
abstracts for work in progress.

The theme of the Annual meeting will be Fakes, Forgeries, and
Fabrications. Papers that fall under this subject will be welcome
and organized into a focus session. Papers related to treatment
projects, technical study and other subjects are also welcome.
Presentations will be 25 minutes in length with an additional 5
minutes for questions.

We are considering having a table discussion and would like to call
for presenters. Possible themes include  "Fakes and Forgeries that
Have Entered Museum Collections" and  "Observations regarding the
demands of the public and the art market on conservation". Panel
members are asked to present 5-10 minute papers on the subject of
the panel discussion and then participate in the table discussion as
well as discussion with members of the PSG.

There will also be a lunchtime Tips Session. Proposals for the Tips
Session are welcome at anytime before the meeting! Tips Session
presentations are typically 3 minutes in length.

Please send Abstracts by September 1, 2006
