Activities and plans

SUMMARY

The objectives and activities of TC17 differ somewhat from those of other TCs. The purpose of TC17, unchanged since its beginning in 1982, is to bring together glass scientists, archaeologists, museum curators, and conservators to present and discuss the results of research on early glass and glassmaking, and on the conservation of historical glass objects. TC17 centers its programs on the research and glass problems of the regions where the Congresses are held.

Two very important aspects of TC17 are that it promotes collaboration among glass specialists in widely-separated countries and it serves as a stimulus and encouragement for glass scientists and historians in developing countries.

ACTIVITIES in 2017

Meetings

Four members of TC17 participated in the C2RMF International Symposium of Glass Degradation in Atmosphere held at the Louvre, Paris. All members presented papers.

Membership

TC17 continues to review its membership in the interest of adding new members.

No new members were added in 2017.

Plans for 2018

Chairman Stephen Koob and Vice-Chairman Robert Brill are committed to increasing and updating our membership in order to have a more active committee.

TC17 is in the planning stages for the XXV International Congress, to be held in Boston, MA, USA in 2019.
