Call for papers--IIC Congress

From: Graham Voce <iic<-at->
Date: Tuesday, June 18, 2013
Call for papers
"An Unbroken History: Conserving East Asian Works of Art and
IIC Congress
Hong Kong

Proposals for papers to be presented at the 2014 Hong Kong Congress
are at present being assessed by the Technical Committee under the
chairmanship of Austin Nevin. We now invite the submission of
proposals for posters to be presented at the 2014 Congress. 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. It is
thus expected that one of the authors of each selected poster
attends the Congress to be present at the poster session. An
extended abstract will be published in the conference proceedings to
provide a permanent record and point of contact. We are looking for
new and original, unpublished work, relevant to the Congress theme
and, importantly, relevant to conservation.

We are also pleased to announce that, as in IIC's most recent
congresses in Istanbul and Vienna, students and recently qualified
conservators will be given the opportunity to communicate their
projects in the student poster section of the congress poster
display. A separate call for Student posters will be made in the
autumn of 2013: please do not submit Student poster proposals at
this call.

If you would like to present a poster, please submit your
provisional title and a summary of the poster in English (maximum
5000 characters, including spaces and punctuation, which is very
approximately 500 words) via the IIC website at
<URL:> by 31 August
2013. To submit a proposal for your poster in Chinese (600-800
characters) please see


Please do not include any illustrations with your proposal
submission. If your proposal is selected, you will be invited to
prepare a text of about 500 words in English or 800 characters in
Chinese for publication; you will be given further information on
this at a later date.

The choice of posters for display will be made in October 2013 and
final texts for publication will be required by 1 December 2013. The
call for Student posters will be made in late September or early
October 2013.
