The aim of the conference is to discuss the role of conservators in
revealing art falsifications. How do we deal with suspicions of
falsification? What scientific tools and techniques are available?
We also wish to discuss the becoming of fake works of art. Who
shares the responsibilities? We wish to encourage conservators and
conservation scientists from all branches who have had an experience
in that matter to join us. Abstracts should be sent before th. of
September 31, 2002. The deadline for papers is January 31, 2003. All
