Aims and Objectives: The aim of the conference is to bring together
multidisciplinary scientists and practitioners working with the
moulds infecting our cultural heritage and the health of the
occupants. The exchange of scientific knowledge with the experience
of the practitioners and the cross fertilisation of ideas with those
involved in day to day management, will help in developing
integrated solutions to the problems of moulds in museums,
libraries, archives, historic buildings and artefacts, occupants and
the indoor environment.

The conference will address conservation science, restorers,
architects, engineers, specialists and consultants confronted with
mould problems, with the following themes;

    Health and heritage overview
    Monitoring and inspection methodologies
    Medical and clinical mycology
    Health hazards, indoor air quality and contamination
    Practical applications and case studies
    Strategies for control

The conference will focus on developing a better knowledge base for
managers and practitioners dealing with the problems caused by
moulds in museums, libraries, archives and historic buildings, the
built environment and on historical artefacts.
