IIC Congress, London 2008: Conservation and Access

Extended Deadline: 21 December 2007

The 22nd IIC international Congress will take place in London, UK,
15-19 September 2008. 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. Manuscripts have been requested from
authors in fifteen countries; the locations where the conservators
are trying to improve access are truly global, extending from the
Arctic to the Antarctic. The approaches vary from technical
experimentation to philosophical analysis, yet a common theme of
risk assessment and risk management can be detected.

Poster presentation is particularly well suited to material with a
strong visual impact, short case histories and accounts of work in
progress. Posters are displayed prominently throughout the meeting,
and an extended abstract is published in the conference papers to
provide a permanent record and point of contact. If you would like
to present a poster, please send us your provisional title and a
100-word summary of the poster content by 21 December 2007. The
choice of posters for display will be made by 15 January 2008 and
final texts should be submitted by 28 March 2008.

Submit your abstract to the Conference Section of the IIC Web-site
