CIPEG Journal: Ancient Egyptian & Sudanese Collections and Museums
The Comité international pour l’égyptologie (CIPEG) is one of 30 International Committees of the International Council of Museums (ICOM). The scope of CIPEG embraces the representation of Egyptian and Sudanese collections across the worldwide museums community, and provides a unique forum for museum professionals and scholars who deal with ancient Egyptian and Sudanese heritage.
In 2017, CIPEG inaugurated the CIPEG Journal: Ancient Egyptian & Sudanese Collections and Museums to serve as a platform for the dissemination of information regarding the study, preservation, and presentation of such collections, monuments and sites worldwide. This open access journal promotes communication and collaboration among museums, museum professionals and others involved in ancient Egyptian and Sudanese collections around the world.
Contributions to the CIPEG Journal comprise papers presented at the previous year’s CIPEG Annual Meeting and its associated workshop, and focus either on the conference theme or on general museum work, collections research, conservation treatments, and exhibition planning, as well as archaeological excavations led by museum teams.

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).
