Call for Papers

Archaeological Iron Conservation Colloquium
State Academy of Art and Design Stuttgart, Germany
June 24-26, 2010

Aim of the International Conference: Preservation of the masses of
iron finds is still a problem. Although somewhat neglected in the
last decades, now there are many current research projects going on
in Germany and worldwide. Summer 2010 will be the right time to give
an overview of their outcome and the state of the art in general. A
number of invited researchers already agreed to present their work.

Submission of Contributions: Researchers who want to contribute need
to send an abstract (ca 200 words) until 31 December 2009 per e-mail
to Gerhard Eggert. Contributors will be notified until 31 January
2010 about acceptance. There will be no conference publication.
Speakers are free to submit talks and papers elsewhere as they like.
We do not expect exclusivity. To help non-native English speakers to
understand the contents, speakers are asked to submit an extended
abstract of 3 pages in English until 31 March 2010 (ready for print
without editing, will be collected in a photocopied conference
reader for all attendants and put on the web)
