This workshop program is designed for practicing photograph
conservators and photograph conservation students. Participants will
be selected to achieve a balance of senior and emerging
professionals and institutional and private practice.  Experience,
demonstrated need, geographic reach, and opportunity to disseminate
information gained will be considered. With the exception of places
for student and emerging professionals, preference will be given to
AIC Professional Associate and Fellow members.

Applications are due February 15, 2014, with notifications expected
by March 20, 2014.  Later applications will be considered, if space
is available.

This program is supported by grants from the National Endowment for
the Humanities and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.  Additional
funding comes from the Foundation of the American Institute for
Conservation of Historic and Artist Works Endowment for Professional
Development, which was created by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon
Foundation and donations from members of the American Institute for
Conservation and its friends. Without this support, the registration
fees for the symposium and workshop would be approximately doubled.
