Mobile Analytics for Heritage Conservation: the 2008 Conservation
    Science Annual
Somerset, New Jersey, USA
November 17-18, 2008

Instruments for analysis and study of art and other cultural
heritage structures and materials are continually becoming smaller,
more portable, less costly, and easier to use.  This trend is
driving enhanced practices in conservation science and in
conservation examination and treatment, not only in fixed facilities
but also in field collection and analysis of data, and other mobile

To broaden awareness of mobile analytics, the New York Conservation
Foundation is producing our fifteenth Conservation Science Annual.
The CSA comprises at least four half-day sessions of Powerpoint
style presentations and posters from colleagues actively researching
and applying mobile analytical methods and technology in heritage
conservation. Again we are producing our CSA in cooperation with the
Eastern Analytical Symposium <URL:>, an
international meeting of analytical science and technology conducted
annually in New Jersey, USA.
