To: Sunday 13.01.19

The Linnean Society, London



Event type: 

The ICON Furniture and Wooden Objects Group invite submissions for papers to be presented at our third biennial symposium. We invite presentations on all topics relating to the conservation of furniture and wooden objects for a day of talks.

Event description: 

Event date: Friday 10th May 2019

In an attempt to repeat the successes of previous events, no specific theme is given. Previously delivered papers covered topics including new and novel practical conservation techniques, recent research, and on-going or noteworthy conservation projects. We would also encourage students and recent graduates to submit proposals.

The event will once again be held at the Linnean Society, Piccadilly in central Lon-don. A light buffet-style lunch will be provided at no extra cost.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 13th January 2019

Abstracts should be 300-500 words long and should aim to provide a concise and coherent synopsis of the proposed presentation. Talks will be around 20 minutes, with added time for discussion after each talk.

Tickets will be available after the finalisation of the programme.
