The Glass and Ceramics Working Group of ICOM-CC, Icon UK’s Ceramics and Glass Group and the British Museum, are pleased to announce the call for papers for the first-ever joint meeting between these parties.
This conference marks the 5th Interim Meeting of ICOM-CC Glass and Ceramics, and the 34th year of dedicated events from Icon’s Ceramics and Glass Group. Held at the British Museum, the joint conference promises to gather an impressive group of professionals specializing in the field of ceramics and glass conservation at a prestigious location in the heart of London.
• Present relevant case studies in the conservation of glass and ceramics
• Disseminate research results
• Promote the application of new materials and technologies for conservation practice, as well as tools for analysis and documentation
• Identify further research and provide networking for future collaboration and activity
All aspects of the conservation, study, and research of glass- and ceramics-based cultural heritage are welcome, and papers may explore a wide variety of topics.
Structure and scope
The three-day conference will include thematic sessions for paper presentations, as well as a small poster session.
We will also feature a dedicated student session. Students currently enrolled (or enrolled at the time of this announcement) in a conservation training program are invited to submit abstracts for this session. If selected, their contribution will be published in the proceedings as abstracts.
All professional paper contributions will be peer-reviewed by the members of the scientific committee, published in colour preprints, distributed in hard copy with attendee registration packets.
