Online Round Table discussion hosted by the Icon Photographic Materials Group
The Icon Photographic Materials Group is delighted to announce that this year’s fourth Round Table discussion will take place online, hoping that a virtual format will allow more people to attend, nationally and internationally.
As in previous years, the event will consist of a series of five-minute presentations followed by questions and discussion. As always, it is open to anyone with an interest in the care and preservation of photographic materials.
We invite abstract submissions from conservators and non-conservators working in public institutions, private practice and education. Subjects could include (but are not limited to) treatment practices, preventive conservation, scientific research, education, outreach and funding.
If you’d like to give a five-minute presentation, please send a titled abstract (c.100 words) with your name and affiliation to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 30th November. Presentations should include around five PowerPoint slides, which should be illustrative rather than textual. Please get in touch as soon as possible for further details or to discuss your idea.
The Round Table event will be followed by a brief update from the group committee.
A Zoom link and programme for the event will be emailed to attendees closer to the date.
Registration is free. To register please follow this link to our Eventbrite page. A final version of the programme will be available by early December, but it is possible to check our Eventbrite page for updates before then.
