An objective of the 2nd Historic Mortars Conference is to bring
together scientists, technicians and professionals involved in
research and studies of historic mortars to present and discuss
advances in this topic. The main theme of the conference is the
conservation of historic buildings and works of art, i.e. studying
mortars with respect to repair. This a unifying field where a truly
interdisciplinary collaboration is needed and where contributions of
archaeologist, architects, civil and structural engineers,
geologists, material scientists, chemists, conservation scientists
and art restorers interested in mortars should have their place.
Special focus of the conference will be on application research and
technical knowledge to conservation practice and /vice versa/ in its
reflection on such recommendations.

Themes: Characterisation of historic mortars; Assessment of mortars
and masonry; Conservation and restoration issues, Repair mortars for
historic masonry Organizers: Institute of Theoretical and Applied
Mechanics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in
cooperation with RILEM the International Union of Laboratories and
Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures
