Conservation and the Eastern Mediterranean

The Congress will focus on the conservation of moveable and immovable heritage in or from the Eastern Mediterranean. This will include material held in collections around the world, the care and conservation of works of art, artifacts and sites, and the preservation of architecture, all reflecting the influences that have made this region one of the world’s richest centres of heritage.

The conference will bring together the international professional community to present and exchange ideas, to debate conservation practices and cutting-edge research, to consider exciting new developments and thought-provoking challenges, and to make new connections between this region and all corners of the world.

An impressive range of over 40 speakers and 40 poster presenters is lined up to report on contemporary thinking, current research and examples of best practice. Topics will include:

 Site and urban conservation and management

 Conservation and research of textiles, sculpture, leather and manuscripts

 Conservation of painted interiors and decorative surfaces

 Conservation of mosaics, wall paintings and tomb art

 Reviews of conservation history and techniques.

The language of the congress and its publications is English, but simultaneous translation into Turkish will be available. There will also be abstracts of the papers in Turkish in the Congress preprints.
