"Injection Grouts for the Conservation of Architectural Surfaces"
Getty Center, Los Angeles
May 18-19, 2009

On May 18-19, 2009, the Getty Conservation Institute will hold a
one-and-a-half-day workshop on injection grouts for the conservation
of architectural surfaces.  The workshop has been planned to
coincide with the annual AIC meeting in Los Angeles. The aim of the
workshop is to provide an overview of the characteristics,
properties, and uses of injection grouts for the conservation of
architectural surfaces, including plasters, wall paintings, and
mosaics, focusing on the desirable properties and parameters for use
in conservation.

The workshop will consist of lectures and laboratory components,
with hands-on demonstrations and practical exercises, to include:

    * basic components of grouts
    * laboratory testing
    * selection of grouts
    * practical application of tests in the field

The workshop will be held at the Getty Center in Los Angeles in the
Building Materials Laboratory of the Getty Conservation Institute.
Due to considerations of space and laboratory safety it will be
limited to twelve participants. The deadline for submittal of the
workshop application form is March 31, 2009. Applicants will be
notified of their acceptance by April 15, 2009. The workshop will be
free of charge; however participants will be responsible for their
own accommodations and ground transportation.
