Call for papers

American Institute for Conservation
41st AIC annual meeting
JW Marriott
May 29 - June 1, 2013

The theme of the meeting will be the Contemporary in Conservation,
focusing on contemporary approaches to conservation.  In addition to
the conservation of contemporary art the conference will encompass
contemporary perspectives from within as well as outside the field
on a range of subjects related to the field of conservation.

The conference will consider topics including:  the conservation of
contemporary art; current issues in conservation and preservation,
such as digitization, environmental sustainability, or the effects
of architectural design on the preservation of objects; current
trends in exhibition design and the new challenges they present for
preservation including greater physical access, longer display times
and more touring exhibitions; developments in preventive
conservation and collections care. In addition to conservators, we
welcome participation from related professionals.

Please join us and be part of your Annual Meeting. Submit an
abstract by September 10, 2012.

Session Types

You can submit an abstract for the following session types:

    All-Attendee General Sessions

    All- Attendee General Sessions papers must specifically address
    the meeting theme. Specialty Sessions

Specialty Session papers are encouraged to address the meeting theme
but may also explore other topics relevant to that specialty. For
more information on specific Specialty Sessions, please visit the
"Submit an Abstract" page in the Annual Meeting section of our
website, <URL:>

Discussion/Interactive Sessions:  In addition to the above three
sessions, AIC is soliciting abstracts for 90-minute sessions that
explore a topic related to the annual meeting theme in a
discussion-group format or another more interactive format than the
standard presentation of a paper. Each session should have a chair
and at least two additional speakers; however, note that this is an
opportunity to organize a session with an alternate format. You do
not need to have all of your speakers selected to submit an
abstract, but, if selected, will need to supply the Program
Committee with that information within a few weeks following

Poster Session: Posters may address the meeting theme, but
presenters can also address their current research interests.
Posters are presented as part of the Exhibit Hall.

How to Participate: Have ideas?  Have comments?  Have contacts?
Would you like to put together a session?  Let us know. Please
submit an abstract of your proposed session for consideration.
Submission Guidelines

You may submit an abstract for a combination of the three session
types: General Sessions, Specialty Sessions, or Poster Session. You
may submit your presentation to only one or two sessions if you so

    If you are submitting a Discussion/Interactive Session, please
    submit only for that, since the format will not fit the other

    Please indicate on the abstract the session/sessions for which
    you want the paper to be considered.

    Please limit your choices to three sessions and rank them in
    order of preference. For example, your preferences could be one
    of the following:

        1st Choice: General Sessions, 2nd Choice: Objects Session,
        and 3rd Choice: Wooden Artifacts Session

        1st Choice: General Sessions, 2nd Choice: Posters Session,
        and 3rd Choice: Book and Paper Session

        1st Choice: Photographic Materials Session, 2nd Choice:
        Electronic Media Session, and 3rd Choice: Research and
        Technical Studies Session

        1st Choice: Book and Paper Session, 2nd Choice: Book and
        Paper Session, 3rd Choice: Book and Paper Session
