Call for Papers
2014 Textile Specialty Group Session

"Conscientious Conservation: Sustainable Choices in Collection Care"
AIC 42nd Annual Meeting
San Francisco
May 28-31, 2014

The deadline for submission is Friday, September 13, 2013

No longer focusing exclusively on treatment, conservation
professionals today routinely incorporate preventive measures into
the care of cultural heritage.  Coupled with the awareness that our
work takes place within the larger context of an increasingly
interconnected and vulnerable global environment, we have become
more dedicated to the issue of sustainability.

The conference will showcase current practice, projects, tools and
ideas in sustainable preventive conservation and collection care. In
addition to preventive conservation measures, the conference will
consider topics such as but not limited to re-housing or storage
solutions for a single object or an entire collection, approaches to
archaeological excavations, collections care practices, reduced
environmental impact resulting from efficiencies and cost-savings in
your own practice, assessment of past projects in terms of successes
and lessons learned.

Textile Specialty Session papers are encouraged to address the
meeting theme but may also explore other topics relevant to that

When you submit an abstract, please indicate that the Textile
Specialty Group is your first choice.

Please email your abstract of no more than 500 words, along with a
bio or no more than 300 words by Friday, September 13, 2013 to:

            Ruth Seyler
            Membership and Meetings Director

Abstracts submitted via email after this date will be accepted at
the discretion of the program subcommittee chair.

For any questions, please contact

     Lauren Chang
     TSG Program Chair
