The NZCCM 2021 conference is being managed by a conference committee from our Otago and Southland Regional Group. 


Call for Papers and Posters - NZCCM Annual Conference and AGM 2021


Date: 20th-22nd of October 2021         Venue: Kelvin Hotel, Invercargill  

Deadline for Abstract Submission: Extended to 5pm (NZST) Friday 6th August 2021  

The NZCCM conference organising committee are delighted to announce a call for papers and posters for our annual conference. Conservation is a risky business. For this year’s conference, we invite papers that investigate management of all forms of risk relating to conservation and care of cultural heritage. 

It is through risk that the conservation profession and collections care advance in policy, treatments, and ethics. So we would love to hear from you! 

Possible themes and subjects include, but are not limited to:

·         Conservation treatments, hazardous materials in collections, deterioration mechanisms, display and mounting

·         Transportation, environmental standards, sustainability in collections

·         Natural disasters, climate-change and its implications for preservation

·         Breakdown in policies and procedures, or loss of information

·         Dealing with change, restructuring and resource availability

Necessity is the mother of invention after all!

We welcome both 20 minute papers and 5 minute lighting talks, as well as posters. Though our priority is to run an in person event, we are also keen to build on last year's virtual success and are open to considering virtual presentations as part of a more hybrid event.

To submit an abstract for a paper or poster please fill in one of the Conference Abstract Forms below and return it to the conference committee - conference.nzccm@gmail.com  

This year we would also like to open the floor to submissions from individuals or groups interested in running a workshop as part of the conference.
