Conservation image The Sixth Conference of the International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics (ICCM) is a forthcoming forum in which conservators, restorers, conservation scientists, archaeologists, curators, and historians can consider the philosophy, science, and methods of conserving mosaics in situ. The conference will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus, from October 24 to October 28, 1996. An aim of the conference is to encourage an exchange of experiences and viewpoints on the practical aspects of mosaic conservation in situ in the hope that this exchange will lead to a better appreciation of the methods available.

The Getty Conservation Institute, through its Training Program, is coorganizing the conference. Other participating and sponsoring organizations include the ICCM and its board of directors, the University of Cyprus, the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, and ICCROM.
