First GRC on Scientific Methods in Cultural Heritage Research Non-destructive imaging and micro- analysis in cultural heritage July 29 – August 3, 2012 Mount Snow Resort, West Dover, Vermont, USA
This conference seeks to foster the dialogue between those pushing the boundaries on methods and instrumentation and researchers in cultural heritage. Research in this field not only increases our understanding of ancient technology, artist intent, deterioration processes, and preservation strategies, it also has clear impact in the humanities, basic science, and science education. This conference will focus on the investigation of materials relevant to cultural heritage at multiple scales with an emphasis on microanalysis and imaging techniques and on opportunities at large scale facilities. Recent and upcoming developments in techniques such as hyperspectral imaging, Terahertz spectroscopy, tomography, elemental and molecular analysis using photons, neutrons and ions at large scale facilities as well as new lab- size sources will be discussed.
Chairs: Heinz-Eberhard Mahnke, FU Berlin Marco Leona, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
Vice chairs: Francesca Casadio, Art Institute of Chicago Philippe Walter, CNRS Paris
