Workshop on conservation

"Science, Technology and Cultural Heritage"
November 9-11, 2005
Catania, Italy

The Italian Vacuum Association (AIV) in conjunction with the Italian
Association of Macromolecules (AIM) is organising an intensive
three-day workshop for researchers, conservation scientists,
conservators and curators with a strong cross-cultural attitude:
science and technology will meet fine arts and humanistic culture to
improve the knowledge and the conservation of cultural heritage. The
conference is being hosted by the Diocesan Museum of Catania
(Sicily, Italy)

Contributions are especially welcomed in the following areas:
techniques using vacuum and scientific investigation of polymers.
However, the conference also remains open to inputs from other areas
of research concerning cultural heritage. Proceedings are planned to
be published in either journals or as a bound volume.

The English language is mandatory for abstracts and paper text. The
oral presentations are suggested in English. Nevertheless the
Italian language is accepted only with slide texts in English.

The workshop will host invited papers and presentations; a poster
session will be held outside the meeting room. The invited speakers
include leading Italian and international figures from the field of
conservation science and conservation. The workshop is an excellent
opportunity for companies, research institutions and conservation
laboratories to show their products, activities and services. The
exhibit will last two days. Some booths are available.

The AIV is a non-profit, volunteer-based association dedicated to
advancing the science and technology of vacuum, surfaces,
interfaces, nanometer structures, electronic materials and
processing, thin films, plasmas, and vacuum metallurgy and providing
a variety of educational opportunities. The members of the AIV are
active in fundamental and applied research, manufacturing, sales,
and education. The AIV is member of the International Union for
Vacuum Science, Technique, and Applications (IUVSTA).
