A two day conference entitled Museum Pollution : Detection and Mitigation of Carbonyls was held at Strathclyde University on the 17-18 June 1998. Over 30 delegates from the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Canada and the US attended. Several carbonyl pollution issues were discussed and a number of actions were proposed.
The initiative to have the 1998 meeting resulted in setting up a working group and the momentum that was gained has been consolidated during the following years.
Since 1998, meetings have been held more or less annually, at Instituut Collectie Nederland (1999), Oxford Brookes University (2001), The National Museum of Denmark (2001), University of East Anglia (2003), CNR-ISAC Padova (2004), Fraunhofer Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institute (WKI) Braunschweig (2006), Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna (2008), Chalon-sur-Saône (2010), London (2012), and Prague (2014).
During all meetings, the developments in research into indoor air pollution and conservation were discussed in an informal, yet serious, atmosphere.
