Abstract:

Welcome to the April edition of News in Conservation.
I’ll start off with a huge thank you for the incredible support received for the production of Issue 46, our first thematic issue on cultural heritage in conflict, and for the many messages sent in appreciation of NiC’s covering of such an important and hotly debated topic. With your help NiC will keep following events around the world and report on the latest news from troubled regions.
In this issue we travel to Doha in Qatar to get a few tips on how to set up a museum freezer and things to consider before purchasing and installing such an important tool.
Following is Caroline Ocks with an article on the conservation of Tibetan Tangkas. You may recall Caroline, as her poster presented at the IIC Hong Kong Congress was highly commended.
NiC is about stories so I am always thrilled when upon reading a submission I get to know people’s stories too. Adam Klupś chose to share his tale with us, following on from previous articles on emerging professionals entering the world of conservation. Do you also have a story to tell? Get in touch, the deadline for submission is May 1st
In the IIC news section the hotly anticipated announcement of the IIC 2016 Los Angeles Congress organised jointly with INCCA. You will find details on paper and poster submission and all relevant links.
