This symposium brings together international members of the scientific community whose research specializes in the field of cultural heritage. Of particular importance are the topics of basic research and applied scientific methods for the investigation and conservation of various objects of cultural heritage, as well as the use of these methods in museums and fieldwork. The aim is to strengthen the collaboration between different disciplines involved in cultural heritage research, and to foster alliances between scientists, archaeologists, and art historians.
