The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI), the J. Paul Getty Museum
(JPGM), and the Yale Institute for the Preservation of Cultural
Heritage (IPCH) are pleased to announce the 2013 Recent Advances in
Characterizing Asian Lacquer (RAdICAL) workshop at the Center for
Conservation and Preservation (CCAP) on Yale's West Campus, July
15-19, 2013.

The five-day workshop will explore newly developed analytical
procedures for acquiring detailed compositional information about
Asian lacquer.  During the workshop, conservators and scientists
will work together in research teams to study and discuss historic
lacquer samples.

Applicants should be conservators, scientists or conservation
scientists.  Scientists should have an established record of using
Py-GC/MS.  Familiarity with associated quantitative analysis
software is preferred.  Experience in lacquer analysis is not
required, although priority will be given to those with current or
future projects involving the analysis of Asian lacquer.
Conservators should have experience treating Asian lacquer and be
familiar with its properties and production.

The application deadline is April 5, 2013 and the cost of the
workshop is $500 USD.  For more information about the workshop, and
to apply online, please visit RAdICAL on the Getty website:
