Following the postponement of the inArt 2020 conference, we are pleased to announce that the 5th International Conference on Innovation in Art Research and Technology (inArt 2022) will be held in Paris from Tuesday 28 June to Friday 1st July 2022.
Previously inArt conferences took place in Evora - Portugal in 2013, in Ghent - Belgium in 2016 and in Parma - Italy in 2018, and for this new edition we aim to organise a convivial in-person conference.
The conference inArt 2022 aims to gather professionals from all the disciplines concerned by the study and the preservation of cultural heritage materials: chemists, physicists, geologists, biologists, conservation scientists, conservators, historians, archaeologists, etc. Ancient materials require interdisciplinary approaches and the development of specific analytical methodologies due to their complexity and heterogeneity, the need for non-invasive analyses and limited sampling, or to simulate alteration processes. The conference wish to stimulate discussions between the participants around three main topics related to the scientific analysis of ancient artefacts: knowledge of the manufacturing techniques; understanding of degradation processes with the use of innovative conservation strategies; and the development of new methodologies and data treatments.
