Call for papers

"Subliming Surfaces: Volatile Binding Media in Heritage
University of Cambridge Museums Connecting Collections: Care and
    Conservation (UCM 4C)
Cambridge UK
15 -17 April 2015

Since their introduction to the conservation world two decades ago,
a multitude of applications have been found for volatile binding
media (VBM), that is, cyclododecane and similar materials. This
conference will be the first opportunity for the profession to
gather and discuss these materials.

Two days (15-16 April, 2014) of oral presentations and poster
sessions will be followed by an optional day (17 April, 2014) of
practical workshops. There will be a peer-reviewed digital
publication of the conference proceedings.

UCM 4C is looking forward to receiving abstracts for presentations
on topics encompassing innovative uses and application methods,
large scale projects, archaeological applications, project
management issues and practical considerations when using VBM,
questions about safety and the effect of these media on the
environment, chemistry of VBM and the issue of residues, and
experiences with VBM other than cyclododecane. Submission of
abstracts, up to 500 words, for paper and poster presentations is
now invited. With your abstract please include title of
presentation, type (paper or poster), name and affiliation of
author(s), contact details (postal address, telephone number and
email) of corresponding author.

Deadline for abstracts: 30 June 2014
Notification of outcome: 30 September 2014

Please submit abstracts and any enquiries or questions about the
conference to ucmvbm<-a t->hermes< . >cam< . >ac< . >uk

Details about the conference will be posted at


as they become available
