Call for papers--Conservation science

From: Joyce H. Townsend <joyce.townsend>
Date: Tuesday, September 12, 2006
Conservation Science 2007 will take place on 10-11 May 2007, at the
Politecnico di Milano, Italy.

The Conference will open with a plenary session: From science
laboratory to conservation practice. The discussion on what defines
conservation science will be key to the programme, and the opening
session will include several short, invited presentations.

Papers are invited on the following topics:
    Planning and monitoring new conservation methods
    New trends for architectural heritage
    New, non-destructive techniques for analysis
    Polymers in cultural heritage--deterioration and preservation

Abstracts of 500 words maximum, in English, should be sent to
joyce.townsend [at] tate__org__uk for selection by the scientific
committee, by 15 October 2006. Poster abstracts should be submitted
by the later date of 30 October, though acceptance may be possible
until 30 December, depending on the numbers received. It is intended
to publish fully refereed postprints (Archetype) within 12 months of
the conference.

English will be the official language of the conference;
Italian/English translation for the introductory session and
discussion, and for the keynote papers, will be provided.

The Politecnico of Milan is located in Milan and the Conference
location is 15 minutes from downtown and main stations and 20
minutes from Linate Airport. Registration and an informal reception
will take place on 9 May 2007, at the University of Milan at 6:30
pm. A post-conference conservation visit in the area is planned, in
addition to a post-conference tour of the spring scenery round
nearby Como Lake.
