Abstracts ultimately due by December 23, 2011
SC instructions for abstracts
The abstracts should be not less than 200 words and no more than 400. They should contain: some introductory information about the objects or materials examined, a description of the aims of the work, the techniques used and the results obtained so far, including a short interpretation. The above information is necessary in order to help convenors to understand the work involved and to select the papers for oral or poster presentation.
Only papers whose subjects fall in the one or more of the designated Sessions of the Symposium will be accepted for presentation. In general papers that deal with the development or/and application of scientific techniques for extracting information related to human activities of the past, including the biological nature of the man himself and the environment in which he lived.
Papers that deal with weathering and deterioration of archaeological objects or monuments will be welcome provided they are relevant with one of the main themes of the Symposium.
Papers that deal solely with conservation techniques or development of materials for conservation are outside the scope of this conference and normally will not be accepted.
