Call for Papers
Wooden Artifact Group (WAG)
American Institute for Conservation
May 11-14, 2010

The Wooden Artifact Group of AIC welcomes papers for the 38th
conference to be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The general
conference theme consists of "Conservation Continuum: Examining the
Past, Envisioning the Future". Participants are encouraged to
explore treatments that have previously been used with success or
failure on all types of wooden objects and to discover new ways of
documenting, analyzing, and conserving wooden materials.
Contributions to the conference can include a presentation, a
published paper in the WAG post prints, a poster, or a possible
discussion in a special tips session during the conference. Possible
suggestions for topics are:

    Comparisons of consolidation techniques for deteriorated wood
    Use and application of analytical methods in treating wood
    Unconventional treatments
    Examinations of treatments several years later
    In situ treatment of wooden objects
    Effects of various contaminants on wood manufacturing
    Conservation of composite wood objects and materials
    Display and mounting issues

Abstracts of 300 words or less should include the title, the
authors' names, professional titles and affiliations and be sent to
the e-mail address listed below. Presentations will be 20-25 minutes
in length and papers will be published after the conference. Please
