>From Gray Areas to Green Areas: Developing Sustainable Practices in
    Preservation Environments

In November 2007, the Kilgarlin Center for the Preservation of the
Cultural Record at the University of Texas, Austin, will host From
Gray Areas to Green Areas: Developing Sustainable Practices in
Preservation Environments, a three-day symposium that examines
sustainable practices in cultural heritage preservation
environments. Symposium organizers are seeking submissions for
papers and poster sessions on the following topics:

Policy and Politics: What are the key factors that make integrating
sustainable technologies in preservation facilities possible? Who
are the people we need to convince? What public policies can create
positive change in our practices?

Costs and Benefits: What are the hard numbers associated with
sustainable buildings, materials, and practices? In what ways can we
quantify the benefits of green buildings, using renewable energy
resources, and other sustainability-oriented changes when the
up-front costs may be high?

Engineering, Adaptive Reuse and New Buildings: What can changing the
shapes and characteristics of preservation facilities do for
sustainability? How are new building materials, thoughtful design,
and adaptive reuse going to contribute to sustainable preservation
environments? What projects are leading the way for us?

Indoor Environments: How will we refine our working and storage
environments to create places where preservationists and the
materials they preserve can co-exist comfortably?

Practicality and Practices:  What steps can preservationists take to
increase recycling, reduce chemical waste, and find alternatives to
hazardous materials?

Deadline is February 16, 2007.

Abstracts for both papers and posters must be in English in either
Word or PDF.  They should be no more than 300 words and must include
the title, the name of the speaker or speakers, the address of the
speaker and any affiliated institution, email address of the
principal presenters and the one page resume for the speaker or
speakers.  Please find contact information for the symposium
