New Lights on Ancient Materials 2007:
    Ageing, alteration and conservation
SOLEIL synchrotron
Saint-Aubin, France
March 12-17, 2007

Application deadline is December 1, 2006

We are pleased to announce that the SOLEIL synchrotron will host the
second New Lights on Ancient Materials training school on the
synchrotron analysis of ancient materials (ageing, alteration and
conservation). The course will take place from March 12-17, 2007 at
the SOLEIL site (Saint-Aubin, Paris region, France).

The training school will aim at providing young scientists studying
the conservation of ancient artifacts with courses on the
possibilities offered by synchrotron radiation techniques. A special
focus will be given to inorganic materials, primarily stone, glass
and metal. However, both organic and inorganic materials can be
studied at synchrotron facilities. The courses will include lectures
presenting the current challenges regarding the conservation of
these materials, examples of application of synchrotron techniques
in the field and in-depth presentation of synchrotron techniques.
Tutorials, experiments at SOLEIL beamlines (to be confirmed), will
aim at combining the various approaches.
