Analytical Spectroscopy in Art and Archaeology at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

Monday 23 September - Friday 27 September 2013
(Categories: Scientific Research)

Analytical Spectroscopy in Art and Archaeology at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, 23 – 27 September 2013
The international conference TECHNART 2013 is jointly organized by TECHNART and the ICOM-CC Scientific Research Working Group.

The goal of TECHNART 2013 is to provide a scientific forum for analytical chemists and conservation scientists to advance and apply analytical spectroscopic techniques to materials in art and archaeology. Materials are interpreted in a broad sense implying paint media, pigments and dyes, stones, metals, glass, ceramics, resins, wood, textiles and synthetic materials.

The local TECHNART 2013 organizing committee will work together with the Scientific Research Working group of ICOM-CC in the program organization in order to built bridges between the conservation and the analytical sciences.

TECHNART 2013 is hosted at the Rijksmuseum and will take place from 23 to 27 September 2013 in the Rijksmuseum auditorium in Amsterdam. This conference will take place directly after the conference of Painting Techniques 2013 which will be hosted in the Rijksmuseum as well during 18 to 21 September 2013.

Special Conference Topics related to Cultural Heritage Issues:

  • Correlative microscopy: combining microscopic and spectroscopic techniques;
  • Advances in non-invasive spectroscopic techniques;
  • Imaging 2 and 3D analytical techniques using X-rays, Neutrons, Electrons and Light;
  • Microanalysis of organic constituents using mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy;
  • Progress in proteomics and immunological approaches to characterize proteins in works of art and archaeological objects.
