An Unbroken History: Conserving East Asian Works of Art and Heritage

22 – 26 September 2014
Hong Kong

IIC is delighted to announce that the 25th biennial IIC Congress.

Submission of proposals for posters to be presented at the 2014 Congress now invited. Poster presentation is particularly well suited to material with a strong visual impact. Posters are displayed prominently throughout the meeting and during the week there will be a dedicated session, giving delegates the opportunity to speak to poster authors. It is thus expected that one of the authors of each selected poster attends the Congress to be present at the poster session. An extended abstract will be published in the conference proceedings to provide a permanent record and point of contact. We are looking for new and original, unpublished work, relevant to the Congress theme and, importantly, relevant to conservation.

If you would like to present a poster, please submit your provisional title and a summary of the poster in English (maximum 5000 characters, including spaces and punctuation, which is very approximately 500 words) via the IIC website at by 31st August 2013. To submit a proposal for your poster in Chinese (600–800 characters) please follow the link. Please do not include any illustrations with your proposal submission. If your proposal is selected, you will be invited to prepare a text of about 500 words in English or 800 characters in Chinese for publication; you will be given further information on this at a later date.

The choice of posters for display will be made in October 2013 and final texts for publication will be required by 1st December 2013. The call for Student posters will be made in late September or early October 2013.
