Call for abstracts
Student Poster Session
IIC Hong Kong Congress 2014

IIC is delighted to announce a call for abstracts for the 2014 IIC
Hong Kong Congress Student Poster Session.

The aim of this session, as with those at previous IIC Congresses,
is to provide a peer-reviewed platform for research and work on
conservation projects being undertaken by students and emerging
conservators who have recently graduated. This is an opportunity for
those who are starting out in the conservation arena to take part in
conservation's international showcase. Student Posters will be
displayed prominently throughout the meeting and, as with the main
poster session, there will be a programmed session giving delegates
the opportunity to speak to poster authors. A pdf-format file of
your copyright-cleared poster would also be welcomed at a later
stage to enable display on the IIC web-site. The abstracts are not
published in the preprints of the conference however.

We invite current students and recent graduates to submit proposals
for inclusion at the 2014 IIC Congress. If you would like to present
a poster, please send your provisional summary of the poster content
(500-800 words, one image may be included) to
students<-at->iiconservation<.>org by 3 March 2014. The choice of posters
for display will be made by 2 May 2014 and final texts will be
required by 30 June 2014. The proposal and abstract submission
guidelines can be downloaded from the IIC web-site; the link is
currently on the front page there.

Hong Kong welcomes you. IIC is delighted to be holding its 25th
biennial IIC Congress in Hong Kong on 22-26 September 2014, with the
theme of An Unbroken History: Conserving East Asian Works of Art and
Heritage. For the first time, IIC is holding its Congress in a
sub-tropical region which brings its own, very particular problems
of preventive conservation. IIC is delighted to be organising the
2014 Congress with the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of
the Hong Kong Government, who have overall responsibility for the
public museums, galleries and heritage sites throughout Hong Kong.
The Congress will be held at Hong Kong City Hall, an important
example of an 'evolved-Bauhaus' style architecture bordering the
famous Victoria Harbour, which will provide a central, capacious and
comfortable venue for the week.
