Bochum and Dortmund

The BigStuff conference will be devoted to the
"monument-appropriate" preservation and interaction with large
objects and infrastructure of industry and technology. At the same
time, there will be a major focus on difficult conservation
conditions pertaining to industrial objects, in particular those in
"open air sites" (e.g., pit head frames, blast furnaces, etc.).

With a program that includes guest lectures devoted to areas of
specialized expertise, poster presentations, excursions, workshops
and a closing group discussion, BigStuff 2007 should be of interest

international focus of the conference will be supported by a
Scientific Committee made up of the world's leading experts.

Big Stuff 2007 will take place from 11 to 14 September 2007 in the
German Mining Museum (Deutsches Bergbau-Museum) in Bochum and the
Westfalian Museum of Industry (Westfaelisches Industriemuseum) in
Dortmund. The conference is international in scope; the conference
language will be English. The conference is aimed at all of those
who are involved with the preservation of large industrial heritage
