Multidisciplinary approach to the conservation of historic interiors
will be the subject of the ICOM-CC Joint Interim Meeting at the
Complesso San Michele a Ripa Grande--headquarters of the Ministry of
Cultural Property--Rome, March 23-25, 2010.

Five ICOM-CC Working Groups will gather together to discuss and
elucidate problems related to the artistic, historic, environmental,
ethical and technical aspects that may arise at the
conservation/restoration of artefacts, which while differing in
techniques and materials, form as a whole a unique context of
heritage interior. Contributions should focus on specific projects
providing guidelines for preventive conservation and methodology of
treatments as well as on theoretical issues, conservation techniques
and research with the aim of defining an exhaustive state of the art
on this issue.

We invite the submissions of paper/ poster proposals by all
conservators, conservation scientists, curators and art historians
in the field independent of their ICOM-CC membership status.

All submitted paper/ poster proposals will be reviewed by the
program committee consisting of the Coordinator and Assistant
