World Class Speakers, Sessions, Networking, Tours and Debates - all online

We are delighted that online registration is free for IIC members, presenters and members of the local organising and technical committees – and we have also taken measures to make membership affordable to all and as accessible as possible by introducing a number of attendance bursaries and grants, whatever your location or employment circumstances.

All the papers and posters are published in advance online with Studies in Conservation, and are available for free to IIC members to view months ahead of the Congress. This has been made possible through the hard work of our editors and contributors as well as through the kind support of our preprint sponsors Historic Environment Scotland and Tru Vue, Inc.
