The ICOM-CC Metals Working Group, The National Museum of Finland and Metropolia University of Applied Sciences are pleased to announce the Call for Posters for the 10th Interim Meeting of the ICOM-CC Metals Working Group.

The conference will be held at Suomenlinna Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located at the entrance to Helsinki’s harbour. This will be the first time that the Metals Working Group Interim Meeting takes place in the Nordic Countries.

We are also excited to announce that for the very first time ever the conference will be offered in a hybrid format with in-person AND virtual programming. This is a new format for the group as we try to expand inclusion and outreach. Although we are very hopeful that we can meet in person in 2022, the conference may transition to a 100% virtual event depending on the COVID-19 situation. If the hybrid format goes ahead as planned, presenters will be expected to deliver their poster in-person in Helsinki.

Selected poster abstracts will be published as digital Preprints and provided to attendees at the meeting (whether in-person or virtual) and will also be available after the meeting as print on demand at Please note that for the publication, all authors will be asked to transfer copyright of their contribution to ICOM-CC.
