Conference

"Aluminum: History, Technology and Conservation"

The International Council of Museums Committee for Conservation
Metal Working Group, in partnership with the Foundation of the
American Institute for Conservation and the Lunder Conservation
Center, is pleased to announce the first ever conference on the
history, technology and conservation of aluminum alloys. This
interdisciplinary conference will bring together specialists from
the fields of conservation, scientific research, and industry to
facilitate an exchange of knowledge and expertise in the
deterioration and conservation of aluminum alloys. This will be the
first conference convened to address these fundamental issues.

The three-day program (April 7-9, 2014) will feature 40-minute
lectures by invited speakers, as well as 20-minute submitted
presentations, with each session followed by a Q and A. An optional
one-day workshop (April 10, 2014) on the identification of aluminum
alloys and finishes will also be offered as a professional
development opportunity.

Papers and posters discussing any of the following conference themes
are invited for submission. Case studies are especially welcome.

    History, production, fabrication and use of aluminum

    Corrosion and deterioration studies

    Conservation of archaeological objects - marine, terrestrial and
