The conference aims at celebrating the 10th anniversary of the European Resaerch Centre for Book and Paper Conservation-Restoration which was founded on March 22, 2010 and brings together experts from all fields, whether they are professionals involved in actual conservation and conservation research, persons overseeing collections where conservation of written heritage is at issue, philosophers within and without the field of conservation of cultural heritage, or art historians.
We call for genuine papers which
- describe the best conservation treatment, be it because of the aestetic outcome or the particular value of the information that the treatment helps to preserve
- bring up issues on conservation theory and philosophy which underline or contribution to the change of conservation philosophy due to changes in our world and the access to new methods in conservation we are obtaining as a result
- deal with the interrelation between our societies and the new perception of conservation of cultural heritage.
Posters will be displayed online. Conference proceedings, that may also include extended texts, will be published after the event.
We welcome abstracts on student’s conservation projects as there will be a special session on the subject.
Deadline for submission of abstracts : 20th September 2020.
