Between July 11th – 14th, the British Library hosted the workshop “Understanding Asian Papers and their Applications in Paper Conservation”. The tutor of the workshop was the independent paper conservator Minah Song.
Conservation and museum professionals are cordially invited to join the textile conservation symposium entitled 'Unroll and Unfold: Preserving Textiles and Thangkas to Last' jointly presented by IIC, the Palace Museum in Beijing and the Conservation Office of the Hong Kong SAR.
The third thematic workshop in the IIC International Training Centre for Conservation (IIC-ITCC) series has successfully opened on 14 November. With the focus on textile conservation, 23 mid-career conservation professionals, representing a spectacular variety of backgrounds from around the world, have been selected to attend this intensive hands on workshop. The workshop is now taking place for the first time in the newly established ‘Hospital for Conservation’ at the Palace Museum, also the largest science institution for heritage conservation in China. Prior to the opening ceremony, participants were privileged to be given a preview of the Hospital guided by Dr Jixiang Shan, Director of the Palace Museum.

If you have not yet renewed your IIC membership for 2017–2018 we want to remind you to renew now before you lose access to the many benefits that membership confers, which include:
Action from members and NiC subscribers required.
The way that IIC sends emails has changed and it now includes an external provider: Campaign Monitor. Automated emails about membership renewals, congress submissions and emails from your account's contact forms will still be delivered by IIC's own server. Mass emails to the membership or to the subscribers of News in Conservation will be delivered by Campaign Monitor. This change was necessary to simplify the management of the thousands of emails sent from IIC each month.
