Call for Papers


"Understanding the Engineering Design of Art Objects and Cultural
Materials Science and Technology 2014 [MS&T2014] meeting
Pittsburgh PA,
October 12-16, 2014

The deadline for abstract submission is March 15, 2014.  To submit
an abstract, please visit the meeting website


In four sessions, over two days, this symposium called
"Understanding the Engineering Design of Art Objects and Cultural
Heritage" will focus on the intersection of art and cultural
heritage with science and engineering.  This symposium will
specifically highlight the latest approaches in reverse engineering
the materials associated with art, archaeology and cultural
heritage, including pigments, ceramics, glass, and metals.  Emphasis
will be placed on various approaches to replication studies intended
to better understand the fabrication of art objects or to develop
the next generation of materials for art conservation and cultural
heritage preservation.  All submissions that pertain to the
scientific study of cultural heritage, or advance its understanding,
will be considered.  Student support is available.

This symposium will feature scientific research funded by the
National Science Foundation under Program Solicitation 11-528 and
12-530 Chemistry and Materials Research in Cultural Heritage
Science, CHS, and Program Solicitation 10-534 Chemistry and
Materials Research at the Interface between Science and Art, SCIART.
This symposium is sponsored by the Art, Archaeology and Conservation
Science Division of the American Ceramic Society (ACerS).

MS&T 2014 is the most comprehensive forum for materials science and
engineering technologies.  Attendees learn from materials
specialists, explore diverse materials applications, and experience
the synergy of this materials community.  MS&T crosses the
boundaries of most materials events by bringing together a broad
range of technical sessions and expertise through the strengths of
four major materials organizations: The American Ceramic Society
(ACerS), Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), ASM
International, and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS).
The expansive technical program is coupled with an impressive
exhibition of innovative technologies with every industry in
materials science represented.  Be a part of this exciting, growing
event.  The meeting homepage is
