Call for papers
ICOM-CC Interim Meeting
Colegium Maximum
Jagielonski University
Krakow, Poland
May 13-18, 2007

An interim conference organized by the ICOM-Poland Committee; the
ICOM Conservation Committee--Leather Working Group; Textile Working
Group, and the Wood, Furniture, and Lacquer Working Group; in
concert with the National Museum in Krakow

This conference seeks to provide a forum for conservators of
different specialties to join in discussing issues and problems
related to upholstery encompassing a broad understanding of this
subject. While one conservator might be asked to repair and conserve
an upholstered object, the project may actually cross many borders
and disciplines from archaeology to tapestry, from leather to
lacquer, from wood to ethnographic art. This meeting will focus on
presenting an overview of the current state of conservation and
restoration research, practice and progress in the field of
upholstery and related materials. Successes, challenges, peculiar
problems, good protocols, and cautionary tales are sought.

Abstracts consisting of 500 words presenting a summary of the
proposed paper/ poster in English or Polish should be submitted to
the coordinators of the Working Groups by December 20, 2006.
