For lots on current work in conservation science for cultural
heritage conservation, attend the 2009 New York Conservation
Foundation and Eastern Analytical Symposium international
meeting,"Conservation Science Annual."

The 2009 Conservation Science Annual" runs November 16-18, 2009 at
the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, NJ just west of New
Brunswick. This year's CSA is a six-session sub-symposium within the
international Eastern Analytical Symposium which runs November

booklet is distributed to registrants, and will eventually be
available in PDF online *after* the event.

A listing of EAS sessions is available in PDF on the "Preliminary

The 2009 Conservation Science Annual program:

Monday's program, organized and chaired by Dr Matija Strlic of the
University of London's conservation program, is completely devoted
to monitoring and modelling of environments.  Strlic himself and
several other internationally known scientists are presenting.

On Monday the CSA also includes a concurrent morning session of
forensic and art topics with papers from industry and museum

Tuesday's CSA sessions are the world's first substantial
presentation of terahertz spectroscopy and imaging for cultural
heritage, presaged by two excellent papers in CSA 2008. These 2009
sessions are organized and chaired by Kaori Fukunaga of Japan's
National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, and
J. Bianca Jackson of France's Ecole Nationale Superieure de
Techniques Avancees. Diverse presentations address theory and
especially research and practical analytical applications. Fukunaga,
Jackson and several other internationally known scientists are

I have also organized and will chair a Wednesday morning final CSA
session on current research and technologies for corrosion control,
with several presenters from industry and academia.

Look for our call for 2010 CSA papers soon. Tentative topics for
invited papers are science and analysis for contemporary art, and
synchrotron analysis for cultural heritage.  There will also be
sessions for contributed papers on these and other topics in
conservation science for cultural heritage. As ever, I welcome
suggestions for future CSA session topics and for session-organizing

See you in November,
