HSAcademy Video Webinar on laser interactions with materials in Heritage Science.

HS Academy Webinar 01/2022: Understanding laser interactions with materials in Heritage Science

Fundamentals and novel methodologies for characterization and conservation

Marta Castillejo (IQFR) PTI-PAIS coordinator inaugurated the HSAcademy webinars for 2022 organized by the HS Academy and we already have a recording of it.

Here you can see the video:

 

This webinar is an overview of pioneering laser ablation studies, that constitute the basis for laser cleaning applications, and of the parallel development of analytical methods based on laser spectroscopy and imaging techniques that have been adequately refined and adapted to the needs of heritage materials. This webinar will include recent and innovative studies on laser interaction with materials in the field of Heritage Science and its application to real conservation problems.

HSAcademy is a collaborative initiative between IPERION HS (www.iperionhs.eu) and E-RIHS (www.e-rihs.eu). The two European projects integrate facilities of recognized excellence in Heritage Science, offering access to a wide range of high-level scientific instruments, methodologies, data, tools and training opportunities for advancing knowledge and innovation in the field.The series contributes to the development of a vibrant heritage science community and is intended for anyone involved in interdisciplinary heritage research

The webinar took place online on January 11.

Gordon Research Conference: Scientific Methods in Cultural Heritage Research. Integrating Multidisciplinary Approaches for Deeper Characterization, Interpretation and Preservation of Heritage.

Next July 10th to 15th of 2022 a really interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary scientific conference on heritage science will take place at Switzerland. It is organized by the Gordon Research Conference.

«The conference, open to researchers from all fields of heritage sciences, will highlight exceptional advances in methodologies and applications, which impact the interpretation, conservation and the fundamental knowledge of global material culture.»

Preliminary program is still being developed but the sessions will cover the next topics:

  • Keynote Session: Insights and Visions Connecting Cultural Heritage Research
  • Artistic and Conservation Practice-Driven Material Study
  • Computational Advances Driving New Interpretations
  • Study of Ancient and Historical Biological Materials
  • Heritage Material Systems from Nanometric to Macroscopic Scales
  • Safer Experimental Conditions for Heritage Studies
  • Engineering and Materials Sciences in Cultural Heritage Research
  • Novel Materials Inspired by Ancient Materials and Practices
  • Keynote Session: Future Frontiers for Heritage Research by Strengthening Collaboration Between the Humanities and Science

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 12, 2022 but early oversuscription must be considered if you are interested.

The conference will be held at Les Diablerets Conference Center, Eurotel Victoria, Les Diablerets, Switzerland.

More updated information and applications here: https://www.grc.org/scientific-methods-in-cultural-heritage-research-conference/2022/

In conjuntion to this conferences, the will be held this seminars called «Scientific Methods in Cultural Heritage Research (GRS)» by Gordon Research Seminar.

This seminar in Heritage Science Research is more focused on  graduate students, post-docs, and other young research scientists to present and exchange cutting edge research solutions for problems related to the preservation of global Cultural Heritage.

Both can be attended but you need to follow a different application process.

It will be held the 9th and 10th of July on the same place, Les Diablerets Conference Center, Eurotel Victoria, Les Diablerets, Switzerland.

Members of PTI-PAIS and IPERION HS will have representation there.

 

 


Conferencia a alumnos sobre deterioro del patrimonio construido del grupo de Petrología Aplicada al Patrimonio (IGEO)

La investigadora Natalia Pérez Ema, investigadora del Instituto de Geociencias y miembro de PTI-PAIS, impartió ayer 14 de diciembre una conferencia a los alumnos de segundo de bachillerato y del bachillerato internacional del IES José Saramago de Majadahonda. La conferencia trató sobre conservación, restauración y deterioro del patrimonio arqueológico y arquitectónico, y en concreto sobre el «mal de la piedra», un proceso de deterioro sobre materiales pétreos que se ha visto aumentado en los últimos años.

22-24 Junio 2022. Mujeres en el Vidrio – Artistas & Científicas.

El año 2022 será el Año Internacional del Vidrio y el 25º aniversario de la fundación del Museo de Arte en Vidrio de Alcorcón. Uniendo ambos acontecimientos se crea este Congreso Iberoamericano «Mujeres en el Vidrio: Artistas y Científicas» en torno a las mujeres en el vidrio, artistas y científicas. Se celebrará del 22 al 24 de junio de 2022. Su objetivo es establecer puentes entre mujeres profesionales que trabajan en vidrio, escuchar experiencias en las que el ingenio suple las carencias de suministros, dar herramientas para mejorar el trabajo y facilitar la conjunción entre ambos mundos (arte y ciencia) que, a veces, parecen alejados pero que no lo son tanto.

Programa

Nuestra compañera Teresa Palomar Sanz, Investigadora del Instituto de Cerámica y Vidrio (CSIC) forma parte del Comité organizador y del Comité Científico de este congreso, junto a ella forman el Comité de Organziación, Mª Luisa Martínez García, Directora del Museo de Arte en Vidrio de Alcorcón y Mª Eugenia Díaz de Vivar, gestora cultural, Directora de Objetos con Vidrio.

Hasta el 14 de enero de 2022 podrás enviar tus resúmenes si estás interesado en participar, a través del siguiente enlace. Envío de resúmenes.
