Duxford/GB: Big Stuff 2010, 6– 8. Oktober 2010 im Imperial War Museum, Beitragseinreichung noch bis Ende Januar 2010!

Conference Titel: “On the conflict and avoidance of conflict between the display and conservation requirements of Large Technology Objects within the museum setting.”

Imperial War Museum is delighted to announce Big Stuff 2010, hosted at IWM Duxford, near Cambridge, on 6th – 8th October 2010. We now invite proposals for presentations at this event.

The theme of the conference will be the conflict and avoidance of conflict between the display and conservation requirements of Large Technology Objects within the museum setting. It is anticipated that day one will cover conservation, day two will cover display and day three, to be held on-board HMS Belfast in London (see picture), will look towards generating compromise between the two disciplines.

The international programme committee will be looking for case studies, where conflict arose in a project dealing with display and conservation, that detail the nature of the conflict, the manner in which the conflict was handled and resolved and how the conflict could have been avoided. Proposals should include the title of the presentation, details of all contributors and the contact details of the proposer. Proposals should be no more than 250 words. Successful speakers will be required to submit their full paper electronically not less than four weeks in advance of the conference for inclusion, digitally, within the conference delegate pack.

(Deadline for receipt of proposals is 5.00 pm GMT, Monday 11th January 2010)

C. Knapp schreibt auf Anfrage:

"Several people have asked for more time as the weather has prevented them getting in to offices so we have agreed to accept proposals up to the end of January, I would appreciate it if you could tell anyone you know who may be thinking of sending a proposal."

Please submit proposals electronically to:
