In collaboration with the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History of Washington, the National Museums Scotland of Edinburgh and the National History Museum of London.

The symposium will have different venues visiting different institutions that are collaborating in the organization of the symposium: Superior School of Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage in Catalonia (Generalitat de Catalunya) and Natural Science Museum of Barcelona (Ajuntament de Barcelona).

The main purpose of this Symposium-Workshop is to emphasize all those concepts related to protection and conservation of Natural History Collections. Listening, discussing and learning with other natural science conservators and preparator-restorers is a great and unique opportunity that we offer for all professionals working in this field, so that our natural heritage gets managed in the best way possible. In this edition, we plan to cover:
· Conferences by international professionals.
· Attendees’ communications.
· Poster presentations.
· Practical classes and experience exchanges.

Following the Symposium we propose producing a publication in the “Journal of Paleontological Techniques”. All the talks, attendee’s presentation and posters would be included.

Remember that the DEADLINE FOR THE SUBMISSION ABTRACTS is MARCH 13th 2015. Please see the attached document for the full conference and workshop programme, submission details and registration forms.
