Call for papers--IIC Congress

From: Graham Voce <iic>

"Conservation and Access"
22nd IIC international Congress
London, UK
15-19 September 2008

Encouraging physical and intellectual access to collections and
sites is a major aim for cultural institutions. Conservators and
conservation scientists play an important part in enabling our
shared cultural heritage to be enjoyed while ensuring the safety and
sustainability of access through appropriate protective measures.
The Congress will examine the role of conservation in the
presentation and protection of the world's cultural heritage. It
will explore the ways that conservation professionals engage in the
worldwide sharing of art and heritage, whether through people going
to see that heritage or the heritage itself travelling the globe.
Contributions to the Congress should report on contemporary
thinking, current research and examples of best practice in
advancing access to cultural heritage while managing the risks.
Possible topics include conservation involvement in permanent
displays, temporary exhibitions, packing and transport, storage and
handling, risk evaluation and decision support, and the
interpretation of collections and sites.
