The ninth triennial meeting of the International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics (ICCM), organized by the Getty Conservation Institute and the Institut National du Patrimoine (INP) of Tunisia and held in 2005 in Hammamet, Tunisia, focused on assessing past practices of mosaic conservation, both in situ and in museums.

This handsome, plentifully illustrated proceedings volume provides a comprehensive record of the conference. The volume's fifty-three papers, with contributions from over eighty leading professionals in the field, reflect the conference's principal themes.

Papers are presented in either English or French, with abstracts of all papers in both languages.
