7–10 September 2011, London
The ninth conference on Lasers in the Conservation of Artworks (LACONA) will be held in London from 7–10 September 2011. The meeting is being organised by the Department of Conservation and Scientific Research at the British Museum in collaboration with the Centre for Sustainable Heritage at University College London. The 2011 conference will focus not only on the scientific research behind the use of laser technology but also on the application of lasers to the treatment and analysis of cultural heritage in a way that is directly applicable to conservation practice.
The main conference venues will be the British Museum and University College London. The conference language will be English.
A number of major themes will be explored by the conference:
The uses of laser technologies in conservation treatments for cultural heritage: cleaning; consolidation; materials testing; innovations; case studies; treatment evaluation; health and safety aspects of laser use; new technologies and applications
Laser-based methods for imaging, 3D documentation and modelling: surveying; measuring; documentation and examination of objects and structures; LIDAR; 3D laser scanning; holography; tomography; interferometry; shearometry; vibrometry; new instrumental and technological developments
Laser-based techniques for analysis, diagnostics and monitoring: Raman spectroscopy; LA-MS; LIBS; laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy and fluorescence lifetime imaging; terahertz spectroscopy; new spectroscopic and imaging techniques
