Call for Papers
WAG Session
AIC Annual Meeting
Miami, Florida
May 13-16 2015

The Wooden Artifacts Group (WAG) of the American Institute for
Conservation (AIC) invite submissions for papers to be presented at
WAG specialty group session at the AIC Annual Meeting in Miami
Florida May 13-16 2015.  The theme for AIC's 43rd Annual Meeting in
Miami, FL May 13-16, 2015 will be "Practical Philosophy or Making
Conservation Work".

The joint session will focus on wooden objects, emphasizing the
melding of theory and practice, ranging from preventative care to
full treatments.  We invite presentations that discuss how
philosophical principles can be successfully translated into
workable--even superior--practice.

While papers on the Annual Meetings general theme of "Practical
Philosophy or Making Conservation work" are encouraged, everyone
should feel free to submit abstracts related to the topic of wooden
artifacts.  We want to hear what you are working on.

Because UNESCO has proclaimed 2015 the International Year of Light,
the AIC Program Committee is also interested in presentations that
discuss practical solutions that take advantage of optical
technology to examine and preserve cultural heritage.  These
submissions will receive special recognition on the final program.
Prospective presenters are encouraged to explore for further ideas
by reading the UNESCO International Year of Light Prospectus.


To submit an abstract, email your abstract by Wednesday September
10, 2014 in Microsoft Word (*not* as a PDF) to

    Membership and Meetings Director

Please indicate "WAG Session" in the subject line, as well in the
body of the email and the abstract document, if attached separately.

Please keep the abstract to 500 words maximum, along with a bio of
300 words maximum per author.  In the case of multiple authors,
please list all authors and include an email address for each
author.  If you have questions or would like to discuss an idea for
a session, please contact Ruth Seyler.

Please note that there will be a post-print from this session and
that the print versions of papers are due by May 31, 2015
