Call for Student Posters
Submission of proposals for student poster is now closed.
The aim of this session is to provide a peer-reviewed platform for research and work on conservation projects being undertaken by students and emerging conservators who have recently graduated. This is an opportunity for those who are starting out in the conservation arena to take part in conservation’s international showcase. Student Posters will be displayed prominently throughout the meeting and, as with the main poster session, there will be a programmed session giving delegates the opportunity to speak to poster authors. A pdf-format file of your copyright-cleared poster would also be welcomed at a later stage to enable display on the IIC web-site. The abstracts are not published in the preprints of the conference however.
We invite current students and recent graduates to submit proposals for inclusion at the 2014 IIC Congress. If you would like to present a poster, please send your provisional summary of the poster content (500-800 words in English or 800-1200 characters in Chinese, one image may be included) to firstname.lastname@example.org (English) or email@example.com (Chinese) by 3rd March 2014. The choice of posters for display will be made by 2 May 2014 and final texts will be required by 30th June 2014.
Regarding the topic of Student poster submissions, to promote professional development all poster submissions are considered, with preference to those related to topic, but not excluding those of merit in other areas. This does not apply to other Congress submissions it should be noted.
Call for Posters
Submission of proposals for posters is now closed.
We now invite the submission of proposals for posters to be presented at the 2014 Congress. 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 We are looking for new and original, unpublished work, relevant to the Congress theme and, importantly, relevant to conservation.
We are also pleased to announce that, as in IIC's most recent congresses in Istanbul and Vienna, students and recently qualified conservators will be given the opportunity to communicate their projects in the student poster section of the congress poster display. A separate call for Student posters will be made in the autumn of 2013: please do not submit Student poster proposals at this call.
If you would like to present a poster, please submit your provisional title and a summary of the poster in English (maximum 4500 characters, including spaces and punctuation, which should correspond to a maximum word count of 400 words) https://www.iiconservation.org/node/add/abstract , by 13th September 2013. To submit a proposal for your poster in Chinese (600 characters) please follow the link http://www.iic2014hkcongress.org/zhhk/call_for_papers_posters.php. 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 1 December 2013. The call for Student posters will be made in late September or early October 2013.
Call for Papers
Submission of proposals for papers is now closed.
We now invite the submission of proposals for papers to be presented at the 2014 Congress. We are looking for new and original, unpublished work, relevant to the Congress theme and, importantly, relevant to conservation. Multidisciplinary proposals are encouraged. We are also looking for an awareness of the need for ethical treatments. A requirement of submission is that one of the authors of each selected paper must attend the Congress to present that paper to the audience.
Papers presented at and published as a result of an IIC Congress all undergo a rigorous peer review process. To this end, IIC Council appoints a Technical Committee of international experts who will make selections from the proposals received and selected authors will be invited to develop the proposal into a synopsis as well as to include not more than 2 illustrations for consideration by the Technical Committee. Authors may then be requested to refine the synopses as necessary, and the final paper synopses will be edited for publication as the Congress Preprints by the Congress Editorial Committee. Please remember that submissions should not have been presented and/or published elsewhere before the date of the Congress.
In order to include as many contributions as possible in the programme and thus in the volume of preprints, it is planned to publish a greater number of shorter synopses than has been the practice in the past. The synopses and presentations will be considered by the Technical Committee during and after the Congress for the production of postprints; selected authors will then be invited to submit full versions of their papers. Further details will be made available later.
IIC invites you to submit your proposal for a paper in English in 500-700 words (up to 3000 characters) via the website, http://www.iiconservation.org/node/add/abstract. To submit a proposal in Chinese (600-800 characters) please follow the link www.lcsd.gov.hk/CE/Museum/Conservation/chi/iic/submission.htm. Please do not include any illustrations with your proposal submission. If selected, you will be invited to develop the proposal into a synopsis of 1000-1200 words in English or 1500-1800 characters in Chinese.
The deadline for submission of proposals is 31 May 2013.
You will receive a response from the Technical Committee by mid-July 2013.
