Another Call for Papers with free submission for Special Issue of Heritage – «New Advances in Stained Glass Research: Materials, Production Techniques and Conservation».

This is a different call for papers than this one from Heritage (MDPI).
Open Access and Free of Charge on Special Issue «New Advances in Stained Glass Research: Materials, Production Techniques and Conservation».

The editors of Heritage have decided to waive the fee for all papers submitted from 1st June to 31st August 2021 a good chance to contribute a paper to the Special Issue «New Advances in Stained Glass Research: Materials, Production Techniques and Conservation»

The history of stained glass has fascinated researchers since the 19th century. Over the past two or three decades there has been a remarkable increase of research into stained glass. Developments in the field of non-destructive analysis and the use of interdisciplinary approaches have opened up new perspectives, and research continues to offer new insights into the materials and techniques used in stained glass production and to provide information about the creative process, traditions, the connections between artists and workshops from divers art fields and, not at least, about the deterioration and the conservation of these fragile artworks.

Open-access databases and modern digital technologies promote scientific exchange between research communities as well as among an interested public. Heritage, an international peer-reviewed open-access journal of cultural and natural heritage science published quarterly by MDPI, has therefore launched a call for papers for a special issue dedicated to the latest results in the field of stained glass research.

Contributions on the following themes are welcome:
– Technical aspects of the production of stained glass.
– The degradation of stained glass.
– Stained glass conservation.
– The importance of databases in the field of stained glass research.

We invite you to submit original research papers and articles that provide an up-to-date critical overview of research in one of the aforementioned fields. Please feel free to forward this call for papers to your colleagues and students.

We look forward to receiving your contribution!

Get the updated program.

Extended submission deadline for papers: May 31th, 2021.

CONFERENCE TOPICS

  • Methodologies and measurements for diagnostics and conservation;
  • Geomatics for Cultural Heritage research and management;
  • Non-destructive techniques for archaeological diagnostics;
  • 3D recording and modelling for Cultural Heritage;
  • Metrology in landscape archaeology;
  • Metrological approaches to the study of written Heritage;
  • Metrological approaches in architecture and visual arts;
  • Bioarchaeology and palaeodiet measurements;
  • Archaeometry;
  • Archaeozoology;
  • Archaeobotany;
  • Metrological analyses of raw materials;
  • Computer science and 3D survey;
  • Metadata and digital management in archaeology;
  • Ancient scientific instruments.

 

«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.»

Live Roundtable Discussion for the Launch of Conservation Principles for Concrete of Cultural Significance, 2nd Dec 2020 10:00 to 11:30 am (Los Angeles time)

This  free virtual event bringing together a multidisciplinary group of professionals to discuss the importance of conserving historic concrete and the importance of using a sound conservation methodology to guide practice.

Background

Over the last two hundred years, concrete has been used to produce a remarkably rich and diverse legacy of buildings and structures increasingly recognized for their cultural significance. With growing recognition of this heritage comes the need for protection and conservation; however, concrete conservation is still a relatively new field with limited availability of guiding resources.

Conservation Principles for Concrete of Cultural Significance (2020) synthesizes current best practices in general repair of concrete and cultural conservation by providing a framework for architects, engineers, conservators, contractors, and stewards to make sound, informed decisions for conserving culturally significant concrete buildings and structures. Available in PDF format for free download.
