Conservation 360º vol. 4 CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

User menu

Find here the call for abstracts of the forthcoming volume in Conservation360º series devoted to multiband imaging techniques with silicon-based sensors.

Thanks to the rise of digital imaging systems, the study of paintings and polychrome heritage objects through non-invasive methodologies has been in constant growth.

Of great interest are, specifically, the imaging techniques comprised at various points of the electromagnetic spectrum, commonly known as multiband technical imaging (MBTI / MBI), —even if other terminologies, such as multispectral imaging or technical photography are also used to refer to the same type of band images.

The motivation for this volume is to be a compilation handbook on multiband imaging for purposes of diagnosis and examination of cultural objects.

This volume will provide an overview, from the perspectives of scientists, art historians, photographers, and conservators, of how multiband imaging techniques can contribute to the examination of cultural heritage, leading also to its proper interpretation and diagnosis.

The volume will also include guest contributions presenting different multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches to multiband imaging in conservation-restoration, technical art history, or in a wide sense examination or documentation of heritage objects.
These insights will be illuminating for the educational, professional and museum environments since the fundamentals of the technical and instrumental aspects of multiband analysis will be presented in the book.

The call for abstracts will be open until June 15th, acceptance of contributions will be notified on July 1st , and the submission of papers is scheduled for October 1st .
