Triennial Programme 2014-2017
Working Group Activities and Projects 2014–2017:
Following the success of the Interim Meetings in Nova Gorica (Slovenia) in 2007, Corning, New York (USA) in 2010, and Amsterdam (Netherlands) in 2013, the Working Group is organising the next mid-term Interim Meeting in Wrocław (Poland) in May 2016. The contributions will again be published as preprints. The Working Group will also work for a significant contribution to the ICOM-CC 18th Triennial Conference in Copenhagen (Denmark) 2017.
The Working Group regularly publishes a newsletter for electronic distribution to its members and other interested persons. It contains information about exhibitions, conferences, research projects, recent conservation treatments, news about members, and other general announcements.
Specific themes of research /investigations
The Working Group organises subgroups on topics that are relevant to sections of its membership. These subgroups develop and update bibliographies and maintain e-mail lists for their internal communication. The following topics are established:
The ENAMEL Network is a joint initiative with the ICOM-CC Metals Working Group. ENAMEL will continue its mission to connect experts in metals and glass conservation. The next experts’ meeting will take place in May/June 2016. ENAMEL newsletters are a major means of communication with members.
The Glass Deterioration Group will continue its work on its bibliography and update its directory of members and research interests. A colloquium on glass deterioration will be held in Stuttgart (Germany), February 20-21, 2015.
