Conservation and the Eastern Mediterranean
IIC Congress 2010
20-24 September 2010

The twenty-third IIC Congress will take place in the spectacular and
historic city of Istanbul, the European Cultural Capital for 2010.
In conjunction with the Sakyp Sabancy Museum, the many Congress
events will focus on the conservation of moveable and immovable
heritage in or from the Eastern Mediterranean. This will include
material held in collections around the world, the care and
conservation of works of art, artifacts and sites, and the
preservation of architecture, all reflecting the influences that
have made this region one of the world's richest centres of

The conference will bring together the international professional
community to present and exchange ideas, to debate conservation
practices and cutting-edge research, to consider exciting new
developments and thought-provoking challenges, and to make new
connections between this region and all corners of the world.

Congress Update: Planning for the 2010 IIC Congress in Istanbul
continues apace. One of the attractions will be a number of evening
events, which will allow delegates to meet fellow conservation
professionals socially; these are as essential a part of IIC
Congresses as the programme of papers and posters.

In addition, excursions are being planned to venues of special
conservation interest as well as sites of more general heritage
interest so that those attending can put their conservation into
context. There will also be a Trade Fair for those attending to
browse and discuss matters with the leading suppliers in the field

Below you will find the Call for Posters; the Congress papers are
already under consideration by the Technical Committee (under the
leadership of Sharon Cather) and will make for a series of important
and informative presentations; the posters will augment these,
allowing displays of ideas, research and work that will add to the
value of the event.

We are also delighted to announce the first Student Poster
initiative, which will give students and recent graduates the
opportunity to communicate their projects in a special section of
the congress poster display. We will be opening booking in February
2010, and the full details of the Congress will be available from
the Congress section of the IIC web-site as well as regular updates
in News in Conservation. We very much look forward to seeing you

Call for posters

Poster presentation is particularly well suited to material with a
strong visual impact. Posters are displayed prominently throughout
the meeting and during the week there will be a dedicated session,
giving delegates the opportunity to speak to poster authors. An
extended abstract will be published in the conference papers to
provide a permanent record and point of contact. A PDF file of your
poster would also be welcome at a later stage to enable display on
the IIC website.

If you would like to present a poster, please send us your
provisional title and a 100-word summary of the poster content by 14
December 2009. The choice of posters for display will be made by 15
January 2010 and final texts will be required by 31 March 2010.

Submit your poster abstract to the 2010 Congress page of the IIC
