In 2016, CIPEG held its annual meeting in Milan, Italy, as part of the 24th ICOM General Conference held on 4–7 July. Papers were invited on the theme ‘Egyptological Landscapes: Museums, Libraries, Historical Palaces and Archives’. CIPEG also held a post-conference workshop from 10–12 July at the Museo Civico Archeologico in Bologna, this time with a focus on ‘Egyptological Landscapes: Museums, Resources and Networks among Collections and Institutions’. A selection of papers on these themes, as well as contributions on broader matters of collection research, conservation, exhibitions, and archaeological excavations presented in Milan and Bologna are published here in CIPEG Journal No. 1 (2017).
