Nova Gorica, Slovenia
27-30 August 2007

The interim meeting of the ICOM-CC working group Glass and Ceramics,
will take place from 27-30 August 2007 in Nova Gorica, Slovenia. The
meeting is timed to follow the triennial meeting of ICOM in Vienna

participants the opportunity to attend both events.

The Glass and Ceramics interim meeting provides a forum to share
information about the latest developments in glass and ceramics
conservation.  Presentations on all aspects of this topic will be
considered.  Some areas of particular interest to the working group
include: new treatments, glass deterioration, conservation of
archaeological ceramics in a museum environment, and training.
Further, the working group has initiated a joint action with the
Metals working group regarding enamels on metal and presentations on
this theme are also encouraged.

In addition to oral and poster presentations, the meeting will
include visits to museum collections in Nova Gorica and Ljubljana,
an excursion to forest glassworks and museum collections in Eastern
Slovenia, as well as a full social program.  An optional one day
visit to glass factories in Murano will be offered.
