The Committee for Conservation of the International Council of Museums (ICOM-CC) is inviting contributions for its 18th Triennial Conference and Preprints. Contributions from ICOM members and non-members are welcome.

This two-phase process consists of a call for abstracts of prospective papers, followed by an invitation to submit full papers for publication.

A call for posters will be issued separately at a later date.

Instructions relating to the Preprints are available on ICOM-CC's dedicated conference website: http://www.icom-cc2017.org

The ICOM-CC Triennial Conference presents an overview of the current state of conservation research and practice. Papers that address the aims and programmes of the ICOM-CC Working Group and/or the conference theme are encouraged. For information about the Working Groups, please consult the ICOM-CC website: http://www.icom-cc.org
