Paris, 30 Sept.-3 Oct. 2020

The conference inArt 2020 aims to gather professionals from all the disciplines concerned by the study and the preservation of cultural heritage materials: chemists, physicists, geologists, biologists, conservation scientists, conservators, historians, archaeologists, etc. Ancient materials require interdisciplinary approaches and the development of specific analytical methodologies due to their complexity and heterogeneity, the need for non-invasive analyses and limited sampling, or to simulate alteration processes. The conference wish to stimulate discussions between the participants around three main topics related to the scientific analysis of ancient artefacts: knowledge of the manufacturing techniques; understanding of degradation processes with the use of innovative conservation strategies; and the development of new methodologies and data treatments.
