Call for abstracts
Incredible Industry
Preserving the Evidence of Industrial Society

The Nordic Association of Conservators (Danish branch) invites
abstract submissions for papers to be presented at its XIIX
Conference in Copenhagen, 24-27 May 2009: "Incredible Industry -
Preserving the Evidence of Industrial Society".

The theme of this conference is the special issues arising from the
conservation of industrial cultural heritage, industrial materials,
products and production equipment. As an illustration, the large
number of objects, their dimensions, function and material
complexity often present a challenge to a traditional conservation
strategy. Focus is not limited to the time period traditionally
considered the "industrial age", but may cover all types of
mass-produced objects. The conference theme is conservation, and
within this context we welcome papers within a broad variety of
issues, e.g., conservation methods, technological history, analysis,
conservation ethics and case histories.

Papers will be selected from the abstract submissions. A scientific
committee will review all abstracts and those selected must be
presented orally at the conference.  A full paper must be submitted
for publication in the conference postprint.

To submit an abstract please follow the guidelines:

An extended abstract of no more than 1000 words including references
(if any) with one figure or table if desired should be submitted.
The language of the conference is English. The abstract must be
submitted as a MS Word or RTF document, which should include
abstract title, the name and affiliation with contact information of
all authors (underline the corresponding author).

The abstract must be submitted by e-mail no later than 1 September
2008 to abstract09<-a t->nkf-dk< . >dk

Authors will receive information as to whether their submissions
have been accepted before 1 December 2008. The successful
submissions must then be written into a full paper. The full paper
may be edited before publication by the scientific committee (peer
review). Further details on manuscript preparation will be
communicated directly to the authors.

This website will be updated at regular intervals with information
regarding the conference, including details on abstract submission.
