Call for Papers
Big Stuff 2010
Imperial War Museum Duxford
6-8 October 2010

"On the conflict and avoidance of conflict between the display and
conservation requirements of Large Technology Objects within the
museum setting."

Imperial War Museum is delighted to announce Big Stuff 2010, hosted
at IWM Duxford, near Cambridge, on 6-8 October 2010. We now invite
proposals for presentations at this event.

The theme of the conference will be the conflict and avoidance of
conflict between the display and conservation requirements of Large
Technology Objects within the museum setting. It is anticipated that
day one will cover conservation, day two will cover display and day
three, to be held on-board HMS Belfast in London, will look towards
generating compromise between the two disciplines.

The international programme committee will be looking for case
studies, where conflict arose in a project dealing with display and
conservation, that detail the nature of the conflict, the manner in
which the conflict was handled and resolved and how the conflict
could have been avoided.

Proposals should include the title of the presentation, details of all
contributors and the contact details of the proposer. Proposals should
be no more than 250 words. Successful speakers will be required to
submit their full paper electronically not less than four weeks in
advance of the conference for inclusion, digitally, within the
conference delegate pack.

Deadline for receipt of proposals is 5pm GMT, Monday 11 January
2010.

Please submit proposals electronically to:
