Training Programme

The Training Programme is jointly organised by MATCONS 2011 and the Romanian Association “Science and Cultural Heritage in Connection” (iCON) and addressed to conservation scientists, conservators and restorers, archaeologists as well as to Master and PhD students of natural sciences, conservation science, engineering, etc. It is aimed to stimulate dialog and catalyze interactions between scientists interested in the application of physical-chemical methods in the field of cultural heritage and conservation and restoration professionals.

Training Course
Application of Thermal Analysis to Cultural Heritage

Employment of Thermal Analysis (TA) to cultural heritage covers a wide spectrum of applications and techniques that provide responses to very challenging questions on artefact's health state such as “How can we detect deterioration, qualitatively describe and quantify it?”, “What are the causes and mechanisms of deterioration?”, “Is the conservation state stable, and when it could become instable and turn to irreversible damage?”
The Training Course addresses recent developments and applications of thermal analysis (TA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermal microscopy (MHT) and infrared termography (IRT). Lectures will provide fundamentals on the employment of these methods in cultural heritage preservation and present particular cases studiess.
The Training Course is open to all participants in the Conference.
Registration is on request. Participants willing to attend the Training Course should indicate it by ticking the relevant box in the Registration Form (max participants 30).
Training Course has been scheduled on 24 August.
Participants in the Training Course will be given a CD containing study materials.

Workshop
Non-Invasive and Micro-Invasive Physical-Chemical Techniques for Cultural Heritage

The Workshop is directed to Romanian professionals, young scientists, researchers, conservator-restorers, art historians and archaeologists, who are users of physical-chemical investigation techniques. It is aimed at supporting a better understanding and diffusion of the potentialities and advantages of non-invasive and micro-invasive experimental techniques in the field of Cultural Heritage.
The course will consist in 3 half-day modules and will include lectures and practical demonstrations. It will address the rôle played by each specific technique for the investigation of Cultural Heritage objects by following a problem solving approach. Practical demonstrations will be conducted on real case study.
