Call for Papers
"Paper Conservation: Decisions and Compromises"
ICOM-CC Graphic Document Working Group
Interim Meeting
Vienna 2013

The Interim Meeting of the Working Group Graphic Documents will be
held in Vienna from 17-19 April 2013, hosted by the Austrian
National Library. The two-day conference, complimented by half a day
of visits to museums and conservation laboratories, will provide a
forum for the broad spectrum of activities in the Paper Conservation
community. Challenges of digitization, changing cultural policies
and economic constraints on one hand, current research and
advancements in materials and techniques on the other hand demand
growing competences of paper-, library-, and archive conservators.
To which extent are decision processes in conservation influenced by
changes in ethics, politics and science? Do conservators have the
profile to shape these processes and to negotiate a compromise? The
meeting will present an overview of the current state of research,
practice and progress in the field of paper conservation.

The specific topics that will be presented in the Interim Meeting

    Reflections on treatment decisions and processes, particularly
    concerning case-studies in paper conservation.

    Conservation of graphic documents in the digital age: decision
    making, compromise and collaboration between conserving analogue
    cultural heritage and providing digital access to this heritage.
    To which extent are ethics in paper conservation affected by

    Paper conservation in the era of 'blockbuster' exhibitions: the
    influence of exhibitions on decisions in conservation
