Call for Papers
ICON Pest Management in Practice - 2008
Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow, Scotland, UK
10 December 2008

It is now 6 years since the pioneering conference "2001 - A pest
odyssey" held at the British Library. Many of the new developments
in IPM, which were first aired or discussed at that meeting, have
now been put in to practice. Others have been refined or maybe even
overtaken by changes in practice. At the ICON "Pest Management in
Practice" meeting, held at the Imperial War Museum in 2007, we heard
the experiences of those who have implemented IPM in many different
collections since 2001. We also found out which are the most
effective treatments to use for treating collections and how well
they work in practice. Promoting the value of IPM to the many small
museums and houses by training and sharing experiences was also
shown to be very successful.

In this new meeting, in Glasgow in 2008, we hope to build on the
success of the first workshop and introduce new IPM topics from the
northern part of the UK. One of the most important tasks of this
workshop will be to enable people to share and discuss their
problems and successes and then to formulate a set of guidelines and
priorities for future work and research to make IPM even more

If you are working on pest management issues and would like to share
your experiences, please submit a paper or a poster for this event.

To submit a paper or a poster please contact Louise Lawson
<louise.lawson<-a t->csglasgow< . >org> by 14 July 2008.
