This year's conference “The Faces of Conservation”, was organised by a local committee from the NOVA School of Sciences and Technology, in Lisbon, Portugal.

The ambiguous title looks to be a reflection of all of us: professionals at different career stages, working in the most diverse areas and all-over the world. Getting to know one another, the struggles and solutions we all face is the motto for this edition.

Given the current pandemic situation, this edition will bring a new online format that will help us carry on with these wonderful opportunities which started in 2011. This virtual format will also allow us to ensure the wellbeing of our global audience and open new horizons on the learning opportunities and engagement that have always characterized these conferences.


A full programme has now been announced - full details here.

Conservation and Restoration.  Following the same panel structure as the first session, speakers will reflect on the subjective path each emerging conservator can follow when choosing a working area and hands-on environment.
