Call for papers--Symposium on collaboration

From: Francesca Casadio <fcasadio<-a>
Date: Thursday, June 26, 2008
This fall marks the fourth year of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
funding of the Art Institute of Chicago/Northwestern University
Collaboration on Conservation Science.  We will celebrate the
occasion with a two and half day symposium entitled, "Productive
Affinities: Successful Collaborations Between Museums and Academia"
on October 29-31, 2008 at the Art Institute and at Northwestern

The meeting is intended to showcase the convergence of critical
technical expertise and resources on questions of interest to the
study and preservation of objects of cultural heritage and will
include invited and contributed talks and a panel discussion with
representatives from the National Science Foundation, the Andrew W.
Mellon Foundation and academic institutions.

Additionally, the symposium hopes to engage participants in a
discussion on how a close coordination amongst funding agencies can
be catalyzed to support research projects focused on art and
archaeological subjects of inquiry.

Participation in the meeting is free, but registration is required.
The detailed symposium announcement, call for papers, registration
forms and abstract submission guidelines are available at


Abstracts submission deadline for contributed oral presentations:
July 23, 2008.
