We are pleased to inform scientists and professionals in the field of conservation and restoration of cultural heritage as well as anybody interested in this area, about the 3rd International Conference “Matter and Materials in/for Cultural Heritage” (MATCONS) to be held on 11-15 October 2013 in Craiova, Romania.

The first two International editions of MATCONS were organised in Craiova in 2009 & 2011 and their great success convinced us to maintain the same structure consisting in Plenary Sessions, training modules and a thematic excursion.

During the conference, the traditional National exhibition of restored heritage objects from workshops and laboratories across Romania will be displayed.

We cordially invite you to participate in this highly stimulating and practically oriented event and would be glad to welcome you to MATCONS 2013
in Craiova.

 
SCOPE
The Conference is aimed at providing a platform for presentation and discussion on the capabilities of Chemistry, Physics, Engineering and Technology to answer specific conservation-restoration needs raised by the conservation-restoration community. The Conference will focus not only on the scientific research and its direct application to the treatment and analysis of cultural heritage but also on the practical problems of intervention facing conservators and restorers and innovative possibilities for the conservation practice. It will offer the opportunity to share methods, studies and strategies regarding conservation, to deepen the interdisciplinary aspects, as well as the development of research and education in heritage conservation, bring out the activity of young conservation professionals and encourage networking.

The official languages of the Conference are English and Romanian. A simultaneous interpretation service will be provided during the Conference.
