CIETA congress meetings
Every other year during the meeting of the General Assembly of CIETA members, international conferences are held in French and in English, to evaluate progress in current research on ancient textiles. The contents of these lectures are then published in the annual Bulletin. These congress meetings have brought members together since the creation of CIETA in 1954.
