«The word metrology has a long tradition, deriving from the Greek word for measure. The knowledge about anything is complete only when it can be expressed in numbers and something is known about it. Measurements play a fundamental role in every field of investigation and present day scientific and technological progress has resulted from progress in the field of measurements.
Metrology, the science of measurements, includes all aspects both theoretical and practical with reference to measurements, whatever their uncertainty, and in whatever fields of science or technology they occur. Consequently the field of valorisation, characterisation and preservation of Cultural Heritage too is deeply related to the metrological issues for the collection, interpretation and validation of data collected with the different analytical, physical-chemical, mechanical techniques, digital technologies, new ICT tools, etc…
Measurements deriving from the large number of analytical methodologies and tools, molecular and elemental spectroscopic techniques, chemometrics, chemical reactivity and modeling, etc., nowadays available are of interest for the conference. Data on the impacts of natural and anthropogenic environmental stressors, the decaying pathways of the different materials in the surrounding environment, the development of new remediation processes as cleaning, consolidation, rehabilitation, etc., based on the chemical knowledge can be considered.»

Discovering Light: Fun Experiments with Optics – (OSAF & CSIC)

Anunciamos la publicación del libro Discovering Light: Fun Experiments with Optics, coeditado junto con SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, the Optical Society Foundation (OSAF), y el  Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), coincidiendo con el IDL2021.

Este libro, escrito por un equipo de jóvenes científicos españoles, y con prólogo de la Prof. MJ Yzuel, pretende dar respuesta a preguntas como ¿Qué es la luz? ¿Qué hay detrás de sus diferentes manifestaciones? ¿Qué es un instrumento óptico? ¿En qué se parece el ojo a un instrumento óptico? ¿Cómo explicamos la visión humana? ¿En qué se basan las tecnologías ópticas que utilizamos cada día? ¿Dónde está la óptica en la naturaleza? Es una propuesta divulgativa, dirigida al público general, pero con especial énfasis en los estudiantes de todos los niveles de Educación Secundaria, presenta una amplia variedad de experimentos relacionados con los distintos fenómenos e instrumentos ópticos, en el que se exponen con claridad los pasos a seguir. Todos ellos vienen precedidos de la explicación de los conceptos necesarios para su realización e interpretación, y acompañados de numerosas ilustraciones y curiosidades. Este libro es la edición en Inglés del libro Descubriendo la luz (CSIC-Catarata, 2018).

Esperamos que sirva como herramienta para ampliar el conocimiento de la Óptica y la Fotónica entre el público general, y, en especial, los estudiantes más jóvenes.

Queremos agradecer especialmente el apoyo de la Prof. MJ Yzuel como promotora de esta coedición en inglés con SPIE, OSA y CSIC.

El libro está disponible en abierto: open access, downloadable eBook via the SPIE Digital Library.

Curso: Aplicación de Nanomateriales en Conservación y Restauración del Patrimonio. Nuevas perspectivas.

Los miembros del Instituto de Nanociencia y Materiales de Aragón y de nuestra Plataforma, Scott Mitchell (Científico Titular CSIC) y Andrés Seral Ascaso, (Investigador MSCA-IF) acaban de lanzar el curso de verano “Nuevas perspectivas en la aplicación de nanomateriales en conservación y restauración de patrimonio” que tendrá lugar en Albarracín (Teruel) del 5 al 8 de Julio de 2021.

El lugar de celebración será el Palacio de Reuniones y Congresos de la Fundación Santa María de Albarracín.

El curso está dirigido a estudiantes, investigadores, conservadores, restauradores, personal de museo, profesionales de patrimonio cultural, y público en general.

Gracias a la Fundación General CSIC, se ofrecen 10 becas de asistencia para cubrir la inscripción al curso.

Además, los asistentes tendrán la oportunidad de dar a conocer su trabajo mediante la realización de breves presentaciones (Presentaciones Flash de 10 min). Además, se realizará una mesa redonda donde se abordarán los retos para adaptar los nuevos tratamientos a las demandas tecnológicas y medioambientales actuales.

Estamos muy contentos con la calidad de los ponentes y el lugar de celebración del curso. Estamos seguros de que serán unas jornadas muy formativas e interactivas.

4th May – IPERION Webinar #02 – FIXLAB: Key Fixed Research facilities Access.

The second webinar will take place online on May 4, 2021, at 3 pm CET. Ina Reiche and Rémi Petitcol will present FIXLAB: research on ivory, followed by hints and tips on FIXLAB access.

FIXLAB is the IPERION HS platform that provides access for the Heritage Science (HS) community to key fixed research facilities and to the associated scientific expertise.
Access is offered to researchers in Heritage Science to help address the major questions raised by the materiality of Heritage Science artefacts in terms of their genesis, manufacturing processes, alterations, conservation and preservation. The unique FIXLAB services offered to the HS community embrace advanced state‐of‐the‐art instrumentation; dedicated facilities with teams of experts in the field of micro‐analysis of HS artefacts; novel developments resulting from IPERION HS joint research activities to improve access progressively; development of both new sample‐positioning devices at a micro‐scale and software tools for the integration of imaging data.

Ina Reiche, research director at the French National Research Centre, will present the topic “Palaeolithic ivory artefacts investigated by particle physics”, while Rémi Petitcol, European Policy Officer at the French Center for Research and Restoration of Museums of France (C2RMF), will talk about “FIXLAB: a catalyst for Heritage Science”.

Call for abstracts for Young Professionals Forum on the 1-2 July.

The Young Professionals Forum proposes a new moment of sharing and exchange, to stimulate synergies among professionals at the international level.

Organized by the Centro Conservazione e Restauro “La Venaria Reale” (CCR), the Young Professionals Forum is once again a digital event designed to create new synergies, share research, experiences and ideas, and meet with leading international specialists in the field of cultural heritage conservation. This year, it will take place on 1-2 July and will involve international young professionals working in the field of conservation, art history and diagnostics applied to cultural heritage. The Forum will consist of two intense days of presentations organised in 4 sessions, each one dedicated to a crucial topic for the conservation and transmission of cultural heritage.

The call for abstracts

The different sessions, organised in collaboration with internationally renowned research institutions (IIC, CNR ISPC, ICOM, ICCROM and UniTo), will host a series of papers selected through the call for abstracts. The selected candidates will have the opportunity to present their contribution and publish it in the Forum Proceedings. 

There will also be a winner among the candidates who will have the opportunity to gain professional experience at the CCR.
The deadline for the call for abstracts is May  9, 2021.

DOWNLOAD THE CALL FOR ABSTRACT

To join the Forum, submit an abstract (consisting of no more than 700 words and 4 pictures – max 200 dpi) of your paper via Google Forms.

Registration for participation in the event is open

All information can also be found on the web page dedicated to the Forum on the CCR website: https://www.centrorestaurovenaria.it/young-professionals-forum-2021

Registration fees to the event:
• Early-bird (from 15thApril 2021 to 9th May 2021), students, participants to the call for abstracts and ICOM members: 35 euros.
• Full price: 50 euros.
Participation in the call for abstracts is free of charge.

 

The Young Professionals Community

Another important initiative that started in February is the Young Professionals Community. A very wide network of young professionals in the field of Cultural Heritage gathered around the Forum and, eager to enhance this valuable resource, the CCR decided to create a digital hub (closed group LinkedIn) where all the participants in the Forum can get to know each other and exchange ideas and perspectives. There will also be a series of training and deepening moments created ad hoc for community members.

To join the community follow the instructions here: https://www.centrorestaurovenaria.it/young-professionals-community
