The theme for AIC's 44th Annual Meeting, held jointly with the 42nd Annual CAC-ACCR Conference, in Montreal, Canada, May 13-17, 2016, will be “Emergency! Preparing for Disasters and Confronting the Unexpected in Conservation.”

Colleagues are invited to submit abstracts that address in a broad-based way the impact of past, present, and future disasters on the protection of cultural property. In addition, papers that address confronting the unexpected in conservation whether it occurs during the treatment of an artifact or during a natural disaster are requested.

The topic can be expanded to address immediate reactions, such as the application of crowd-mapping technology to aid response efforts, or longer term developments stemming from disasters, such as the adoption of simple strategies. The unexpected may include surprises encountered along the way in any treatment and can be expanded to include all stakeholders, even future ones, who are affected by a disaster.

The review committees will be looking for abstracts related to the general theme, however other topics will be reviewed as well. In order to simplify abstract submission for all applicants, the AIC has just launched a new online abstract submission tool. The submission portal is accessible through the abstracts page – to learn more about the Meeting Theme and read the General, Specialty, and Joint Sessions Call for Papers, visit http://www.conservation-us.org/abstracts.

Submission deadline for papers is Monday, September 14, 2015. Poster abstract submissions are due Thursday, October 1st.
