The biennial event will gather scientists, conservators, restorers,
architects, companies, decision-makers, professors and students
involved in projects on laser equipment and its applications to
artwork conservation.

The organizers expect a large number of contributions and
participants from all over the world, since the application of
lasers in conservation has gained massively field in the last years
through their application to an increasing number of historic
monuments. Presumably, the event will bring together more than 300

show by suppliers and service providers during the conference.
