Call for Papers
AIC Architectural Specialty Group
AIC Annual Meeting
April 2008

The Architectural Specialty Group (ASG) of the AIC is requesting
paper submissions for the AIC's 36th Annual Meeting, to be held in
Denver, Colorado, April 21-24, 2008. The deadline for submission of
abstracts is September 15, 2007.

The theme of the meeting is "Creative Collaborations," and the
sessions will emphasize successful partnerships between conservators
and professionals in other fields. Papers related to the goals of
the ASG and incorporating the conference theme are requested, and
will be organized into a special session at the conference.
Applicable topics might include projects whose success hinged on
unusual or noteworthy collaboration between conservators and other
professions, such as architects, engineers, artists/craftsmen,
owners, or industry representatives. Other topics include new
research that includes contributions from multiple disciplines, or
new knowledge gained by the collaboration of multiple conservators.
Presentations will be 25-30 minutes in length with additional time
for questions.

2008 marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the
Architectural Specialty Group, and the conference will include
events relating to the anniversary.

As previously, ASG will award up to two scholarships to current
students or recent graduates of programs in architectural
conservation programs, to help cover the costs of attending the AIC
Annual Meeting.  The scholarships will be awarded based on
acceptance of a paper presentation for the AIC general session or
ASG session, to be submitted by the applicant and judged by the AIC
program committee. "Recent graduates" include those who have
completed a program within the past three years. The scholarship
will include registration for the 2008 meeting and a $500 stipend
that can be applied to travel and lodging costs. In addition, the
scholarship will cover one-year membership in AIC/ASG if the
recipient is currently not a member of AIC/ASG.  The ASG officers
strongly encourage students and new professionals to apply for this
opportunity and established professionals to spread the word.

Abstracts should be submitted to Kevin Daly <kdaly [at] wbmelvin__com>,
ASG Program Chair by September 15, 2007. Abstracts should be
submitted in .txt format, and be no longer than 500 words. Questions
or comments can be directed to the Program Chair by email or at
