This one day conference will bring together researchers in diverse areas of specialization whose commonality is the protection and preservation of cultural heritage, including irreplaceable artistic and historical collections, buildings and important local, nation and international sites. Speakers will promote awareness of the importance of cultural heritage, what is being done to protect it, how it can be done successfully, and where research data is needed.
