Risk Assessment - Management Strategies
Aschaffenburg/Germany, Stadthalle am Schloss
February 14-16, 2008

International Conference of the Restorers Association of Germany
(VDR - Verband der Restauratoren e.V.)

Working Group Preventive Conservation

Natural disasters as flood disasters or burnings clarify the
difficulties to prevent cultural heritage from such risks and to act
in case of an emergency in a time-efficient way. Besides these
disastrous catastrophes it is necessary for every museum institution
in terms of different risks and threats to minimize cases of damage
or loss by cautious risk assessment and to act on cost-efficient and
time-effective management strategies. Protections should therefore
include e.g. fire control, natural disasters, anti-theft devices and
vandalism as well as war and terrorism. Management strategies have
to apply both for smaller emergencies and for big disasters.

This international conference is to set the state-of-the-art in the
field of risk assessment and management strategies. Participants are
invited to an all-embracing exchange of experience and to discuss
patterns of behaviour in emergencies, cost-efficient and
time-efficient safety concepts as well as responsibilities and
information management. Due to the complexity of this topic, papers
from different fields are requested.

The official languages of the conference are German and English (no
simultaneous translation). Accepted papers are included in the
conference materials, publication in a reviewed journal is foreseen.
