Abstract:

Welcome to the August issue of News in Conservation!
It is nearly time for IIC’s Students and Emerging Conservators Congress, about to take place in Copenhagen next 12-13 September 2013. We expect a busy and lively event and to the ones among you planning to participate, I would like to invite you to send us your pictures/impressions/ reviews and whatever else relating to the event you think would be interesting for our readers, for publication in the next issue.
In this issue we have two amazing articles – I’m ever so grateful to authors sending such high quality material, thus contributing to NiC’s ever-growing reputation as one of the most popular international magazines in the field of conservation.
The first feature has been contributed by Jenny Figari from Peru, and talks about Yachay Wasi, the first Conservation Programme in the country.
The extended feature is an article submitted by Guy Devreux and Stefano Spada from the Vatican Museum in Rome. This paper discusses new solutions to improve mechanical anchoring systems for detached parts of stone artefacts.
In the IIC News section we have more information on forthcoming events including the Hong Kong and the Copenhagen Congress.
