Symposium on archaeological storage
Los Angeles
June 6-8, 2008

The UCLA/Getty Master's Program in Archaeological and Ethnographic
Conservation, part of UCLA's Cotsen Institute for Archaeology, will
be hosting a Symposium on Archaeological Storage.

This symposium will bring together directors of excavations and of
centralized storage repositories for archaeological collections,
archaeological conservators who have achieved innovative and
accessible storage methods, and archaeologists who have developed
digital management systems for portable finds. The challenges and
successes of 3-D scanning and modeling as tools for outreach,
research and conservation will be described by an interdisciplinary
group of speakers. International speakers will join Cotsen Institute
Archaeology and Conservation faculty and students as participants in
the program.

The symposium will be held at the Lenart Auditorium at UCLA, near
the Cotsen Institute in the Fowler Museum for Cultural History in
Los Angeles. The first 120 registrants will receive tickets to a
reception and visit to the Getty Villa, a museum and educational
center housing Greek, Roman, and Etruscan materials.
