This forum is being held under the auspices of the Portuguese Committee of the Corpus Vitrearum and the International Committee of the Corpus Vitrearum for the Conservation of Stained Glass. It will consider the conservation challenges posed by the changing aesthetics, new technology and materials of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and will consist of two full days of oral presentations and poster sessions. Sessions will cover the subject areas of materials and techniques and conservation measures. The morning of the third conference day will be spent viewing stained glass in Lisbon.
The forum is open to all interested stained-glass professionals, including conservators, conservation scientists, artists, architects, cultural heritage managers, art historians, students, etc. Papers will be offered in English, French and German (simultaneous translation not be provided).
Information regarding the conference programme and venue, as well as details of registration and accommodation facilities are available here.
The forum dates have been chosen in order to enable participants to attend the 16th Triennial Meeting of ICOM-CC, which will also be held in Lisbon, 19–23 September 2011.
