Call For Papers
ICA Oxford University Seal Conservation Congress

There are still some places available for contributions to the
International Conseil des Archives Seal Conservation Congress, to be
hosted by the Conservation and Collection Care Department of Oxford
University Library Services.  The Congress will be held at Merton
College, Oxford, in March 2007.

The subject of the Congress is recent research into the conservation
of archival seals and sealed documents.  Presentations can cover
analysis of materials, condition, information and treatment
strategies for any aspect of seal conservation, and can include
related research on early wax objects and the nature of their decay
and conservation.  'Research' includes evaluation of remedial
treatments past and present, comparisons of the efficacy of
different approaches, and can cover treatments for forms of
attachments, such as cords and tags, as well as for seals
themselves.  Seals may be wax or resin pendant or resin or other
forms of applied seals, on paper, parchment or other documents.

The Congress is by invitation based on abstracts of presentations.
Up to 15 individuals can attend.  Accommodation will be provided
free of charge, delegates need to fund their travel costs.

Please send ideas, abstracts or queries to
