The congress programme is being created in collaboration by a group of experts from 34 organisations
who are working together under the umbrella project PRACTICs. Most of these individuals worked
together during the EU project Inside Installations (2004-2007). For more information about PRACTICs

Co-organisers of the congress would like to point out that there will be no call for papers, but there will
be a call for posters. This is expected to be sent out in September 2009.
MA:WC?II will feature plenary lectures as well as a choice of circa 10 parallel sessions per day;
discussions, workshops and site visits. There will also be time allocated to poster presentations and
networking sessions. The themes for the three day congress are as follows:
Day 1: Acquisition: production and collection building
Day 2: Articulation: care & conservation
Day 3: Access: presentation & the role of the public
More details on the programme will be posted alongside registration information in September.
