COMCOL is an International Committee of ICOM which aims to deepen discussions, and share knowledge on the practice, theory and ethics of collecting and collections (both tangible and intangible) development. COMCOL is a platform for professional exchange of views and experiences around collecting in the broadest sense. The mandate includes: collecting and de-accessioning policies; contemporary collecting; restitution of cultural property and respectful practices that affect the role of collections now and in the future, from all types of museums and from all parts of the world.

We are pleased to announce that the next annual COMCOL conference will take place in Seoul, KOREA from October. 26 (Mon) - 31 (Fri), 2015 at the The National Folk Museum of Korea.
Its with a great feeling of gratitude we look back at the conference in Celje earlier this month. It was great to see so many of you. For those who could not be there this time, we are happy to report to you in the next newsletter and on our website in the next moth or so.
