Sunday, 15 October, 2017 to Friday, 20 October, 2017
Deadline: Wednesday, 15 February, 2017
Place: Barcelona

The 13th Conference of the International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics (ICCM) will be held in Barcelona, October 15-20, 2017, at the invitation of the Barcelona Archaeological Service, a municipal body of the Institut de Cultura Barcelona City Council, with support from the Getty Foundation.

The conference is intended for conservators, restorers, archaeologists, and art historians, among others, who work in public institutions, museums, universities, city councils or others. It is also, in a very evident way, a conference designed for students and recent graduates, in addition to (usually small-scale) restoration companies.

Conference Theme:
WHAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU HEAR MOSAIC? Conserving mosaics from ancient to modern

Conference Venue:
The Conference will be held at El Born Centre de Cultura i Memoria.

The first circular and call for papers, posters and videos is available at the ICCM though the following link:

The deadline for submission of the abstracts is February 15th, 2017.
