Call for papers--Conference on materials and techniques in archaeological conservation

From: Beth Werrett <b.werrett<-at->
Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Call for Papers:

"Innovation and Invention: Developments in Conservation Materials
    and Techniques"

and the ICON Archaeology Group AGM
The ICON Archaeology Group

The Royal Armouries
Armouries Drive
Leeds LS10 1LT
Friday, 7 June 2013

In response to the interest shown in our recent member survey this
event will present talks discussing the use of innovative materials
and techniques in archaeological conservation.  We are therefore
looking for short talks (approximately 20 minutes) describing and
explaining the use of new or modified materials and techniques that
you may have recently used.  This could include: newly manufactured
materials/replacements for materials whose use is now
prohibited/transfer of techniques from other spheres of conservation
or other professions.

We are also planning to have an hour at the end for the presentation
of more informal, short talks, so if you have a quick hint or tip,
or information about a material/technique which may only take a few
minutes to explain, do let us know.

If you would like to offer a talk related to the use of new
materials or techniques in conservation please contact Mags Felter
<mfelter<-at->yorkat<.>co<.>uk>

The deadline for submissions of papers is Friday 10 May 2013.
