Dear Bachelor, Master and Ph.D Students!
We would like to invite you to take part in the 4th International Student Conference of
Conservation and Restoration of Works of Art that will be held on 6th – 8th of November
2019 (Wednesday – Friday) in Cracow, Poland.
The conference is dedicated to students of conservation-restoration studies and related
fields such as physics, chemistry, architecture, art history etc. Works regarding the topic of
the interdisciplinary research and conservations science are welcomed. Participants can
present their achievements (outcomes of projects or research students took part in, case
studies, thesis, scientific papers) in the form of oral presentation (with a PPT presentation)
or as a poster. The abstract submission due date is 30 th of June 2019.
The official language of the Conference is English. The participation is free of charge.
Presented works at the conference will be published.
Last edition of the Conference (in 2016) was a great opportunity to share experience with
students of art conservation from around the world. There were more than 250 participants
from Poland, The Czech Republic, Latvia, Estonia, Slovakia, Belarus, Hungary, Croatia, France,
Great Britain, Mexico, Brazil, Greece, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Ukraine. Around 60
participants had presented their scientific works in the form of presentations and posters.
We truly have enjoyed seeing all of them!
This year we would love to gather together once again and to create space for young
researchers who want to take the first step towards a scientific career, be a part of the
international debate on current conservation-restoration issues or to just meet inspiring
people and have a good time in the surrounding of magnificent monuments of Cracow. One
of them, the most unique gothic masterpiece, the Veit Stoss Alterpiece is being the theme of
this year’s conference. The ongoing complex conservation of the altar will be great
opportunity to discuss the meaning of the interdisciplinary research on the works of art.
