This workshop took place in Stanford, Redwood City, California.
If you wish to be involved in terminology after this workshop please contact us. We seek experts in a variety of conservation domains.

Conservators use many vocabularies in their descriptions. As a result of this workshop we will report on the current landscape of terminology in conservation, test available tools and propose future work.
