The theme for AIC's 47th Annual Meeting is...

New Tools, Techniques, and Tactics in Conservation and Collection Care

The meeting will be held from Monday, May 13th through Friday, June 2nd, 2017 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT.  

Meeting Theme

Are conservation professionals innovators? We think so. From developing new approaches to conservation treatment and preventive care, to utilizing cutting-edge technological research, to examining how cultural heritage is defined and valued, conservation professionals are innovative, dynamic, forward-looking agents of change. And how does collaboration with related fields and allied professionals influence the dynamics of the conservation – innovation process? 

We seek papers that explore all types of new work: practical, method-focused treatment projects; advances in collections care and management; discoveries in conservation science; and conservation initiatives that intentionally have a positive impact on communities. In 2019, let’s come together to share new ideas for solving conservation and collections care problems large and small.
