The 22nd General Conference of the International Council of Museums will be held in a few days at the World Expo Centre in Shanghai, China.

More than 3,600 museum professionals from all corners of the world, representing 122 countries, regions and international organisations, are expected to attend this major event for the world museum community. The six-day conference will provide museum professionals with a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and reflect on this year’s theme, "Museums for social harmony".

The ICOM General Conference will welcome former president of France Jacques Chirac as well as six eminent transdisciplinary scholars: Lourdes Arizpe, Xiejun Chen, Gabriella Battaini-Dragoni, Okwui Enwezor, Jinshi Fan and former president of Mali Alpha Oumar Konaré.

Two Open Forums will be held on museum-related topics ranging from economic issues to the role of volunteers in museums, while the Museum Trade Fair will display the latest trends in the industry. The organisation’s International Committees will hold meetings on several scientific and academic topics related to museum professions and specific museum fields.

ICOM’s annual meetings will also be held during the General Conference, chief amongst which will be the General Assembly on 12 November 2010, during which the new President and Executive Council of ICOM will be elected.

The General Conference programme is available on the ICOM Shanghai 2010 website:
