The purpose of this conference is to bring together specialists in relevant aspects of cultural preservation for the exchange of ideas on the conservation and management of cave temple sites along the Silk Road. Because of limited facilities, the number of delegates is restricted to 200. Conference languages are English and Chinese.
The conference program will include visits to the Mogao grottoes, a World Heritage Site with wall paintings and statuary dating from the 4th to the 14th centuries. A ten-day post-conference tour visiting Silk Road sites between Urümqi and Kashgar, in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and a one-day post-conference visit to the Yulin cave temples are also planned.
The full conference announcement-including call for papers and form to express interest-is posted in the Conservation section of the Getty Web site, www.getty.edu/conservation/.
