Request for host, sponsor and support for ICOM-CC-Wood and Furniture
First International conference.

ICOM-CC-Wood, Furniture, Lacquer and related materials (ICOM-CC-W&F)
is requesting proposals from Museums, National committees of ICOM,
Universities, colleges, conservation-restoration organizations and
financial organizations to host, co-sponsor, sharing, and support
its first international conference.

ICOM-CC-W&F built up of specialists, conservators, scientists,
technicians, curators, architects, engineers and other
professionals, who work or interested in conservation and
restoration of wood, furniture, lacquer and related materials and
who actively collaborate, study and promote the conservation and
analysis of culturally and historically significant works. It covers
all areas of wood such as wooden objects, wooden furniture,
ethnographic wood (totem, poles etc), colored and painted wood,
turned wood, gilded wood, structural wood, archaeological wood, wood
technology and wood sciences. It also covers all areas of lacquer
and related materials etc. ICOM-CC-Wood and Furniture First
International conference will cover all these areas to present and
conclude the state of the art of conservation and restoration in
this field. We are looking forward to have a successful and
enjoyable conference.

The conference date will be decide later on accordant to the
possibilities. We need a suitable place as conference venue with
presentation facilities (such as overhead projector, slide
projector, and video beamer controlled from IBM compatible
PC/PowerPoint.) and facilities for posters presentations (good space
and standee Double-sided poster boards adequate for standard US

As the conference languages will be at least English and the host
century language so it will be good if the host place has the
facilities for simultaneous translation.

Financial assist and support will also be needed to cover the costs
such as costs for prints and Technical Committee, and also to be
able to invite some special speakers, provide some travel supports
for some presenters and to provide some bursaries to some
conservation professionals especially from developing countries to
attend the conference. (all those costs will be flexible to be
controlled and done accordant to the available fund).

If you are interested and have proposals or suggestions please
