Conservation is becoming increasingly more international and interdisciplinary. Conservators, curators, and scientists are aware of the importance of sharing knowledge and the value of discussing advanced research to improve conservation practice. Following a sequence of successful meetings, including Nova Gorica (2007), Corning (2010), and Amsterdam (2013), the last interim meeting of the ICOM-CC Glass and Ceramics Working Group was organised in Wrocław, Poland.

Aims of the conference

  • to present relevant case studies in the conservation of glass and ceramics
  • to disseminate research results in the field of cultural heritage
  • to promote the application of new materials and technologies for conservation practice as well as tools for analysis and documentation
  • to identify further research and to provide networking for future activities

Target audience

  • conservators working in museums and in private practice
  • scientists specialising in conservation
  • students interested in glass and ceramics
  • curators and administrators in charge of museum collections or cultural heritage sites

Structure and scope
The three-day conference included thematic sessions on research in progress and case studies related to glass and ceramics conservation and scientific investigation. A limited number of posters was displayed. Several post-conference tours were offered to allow participants to explore glass making as well as museum collections in Poland. Following the format of the previous meeting in Amsterdam, a Student Forum followed or preceded the conference.

The conference language was English.
