El objetivo que se busca es explicar, desde la experiencia profesional (como responsable del Patrimonio Cultural de un municipio), pero también personal como discapacitado físico, el concepto de “cadena de accesibilidad”, y su aplicación, en contextos patrimoniales y museísticos reales, reconociendo los problemas cotidianos existentes y estableciendo, con pragmatismo y desde la realidad, qué suele ocurrir y cómo se debe intentar afrontar los problemas que vayan surgiendo en el camino.

Partiremos de las distintas definiciones del concepto de “accesibilidad”, deteniéndonos especialmente en el concepto e importancia de la “cadena de accesibilidad”, explicando cuáles son sus elementos fundamentales, su importancia intrínseca, y en qué medida pueden fracasar nuestros proyectos si no se cumple dicha cadena en todos sus eslabones. Posteriormente, con los conceptos aclarados se pasa a exponer la puesta en práctica de los mismos en algunas actuaciones reales en donde se haya intervenido para la instalación de infraestructuras museísticas en espacios patrimoniales protegidos. Se termina por exponer los pros y los contras de dichas actuaciones, estableciendo un decálogo de medidas a desarrollar para intentar garantizar el éxito de las mismas.

La conclusión general del Taller parte de la idea de la necesidad de llevar a cabo actuaciones que cumplan con el concepto y exigencias de la cadena de accesibilidad, pero se exponen casos concretos en donde por diversas circunstancia se aprecia la dificultad que existe, a diario, con su real aplicación. En cualquier caso, se establecen las pautas que se consideran necesarias para que, si se cumplen, puedan llevarse a cabo con éxito dichas actuaciones.

Metrology for Archaeology and Cultural Heritage

July 26, 2017

Call for papers and/or posters

fromdu 23 October 2017 toau 25 October 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
Università del Salento, Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali e del Turismo, Istituto per i Beni Archeologici e Monumentali, International Measurement Confederation, Italy

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Lecce, Italy

Description :
The word metrology has a long tradition, deriving from the Greek word for measure. The knowledge about anything is complete only when it can be expressed in numbers and something is known about it. Measurements play a fundamental role in every field of investigation and present day scientific and technological progress has resulted from progress in the field of measurements.
Metrology, the science of measurements, includes all aspects both theoretical and practical with reference to measurements, whatever their uncertainty, and in whatever fields of science or technology they occur. Consequently the field of valorisation, characterisation and preservation of Cultural Heritage too is deeply related to the metrological issues for the collection, interpretation and validation of data collected with the different analytical, physical-chemical, mechanical techniques, digital technologies, new ICT tools, etc…
METROARCHAEO2017 wants to gather together Heritage scientists in universities, research institutions, museums, galleries, libraries, archives, small and medium enterprises.
The conference program is conceived to foster exchanges of ideas and information, make connections and collaborations, update innovation on “measurements” suitable for Cultural Heritage among material scientists, chemists, physicists, engineers, archaeologists, conservators, restorers, etc..
Examples of technologies that may be object of presentations are indicated below.
Accurate and appropriate measured survey and imaging data is a fundamental requirement for the effective conservation, management and understanding of our cultural heritage. Such data that need to be cost-effective and sensitive to the nature of the site and any interventions proposed may be considered.
Archaeogeophysic methods represent a range of non-invasive surveying with geophysical techniques, as GPR, Geoelectric, EM, Geomagnetic, Gravity, Seismic, which can highlight the buried contrasts between subsurface features and human activity, may be considered, as well as Geoarchaeology, the ‘earth-science’ approach to archaeological interpretation.
Measurements deriving from the large number of analytical methodologies and tools, molecular and elemental spectroscopic techniques, chemometrics, chemical reactivity and modeling, etc., nowadays available are of interest for the conference. Data on the impacts of natural and anthropogenic environmental stressors, the decaying pathways of the different materials in the surrounding environment, the development of new remediation processes as cleaning, consolidation, rehabilitation, etc., based on the chemical knowledge can be considered.
Summarizing, METROARCHAEO2017 is designed to profit of a multidisciplinary approach to give to the Cultural heritage community, from archaeologists to historians, conservators, engineers, material scientists, etc… a complete picture of the measurements utilizations and data treatments with the ultimate goal of increasing knowledge on the characterization and safeguard of archaeological and historic heritage, generally addressed in sectorial conferences.

Description :
it is our great honour to announce and to invite you to take part to the
6th edition of YOCOCU – YOuth in COnservation of CUltural Heritage- 2018
that will take place in Matera (Italy) from the 23rd to the 25th of May.
For detailed information about the conference please visit the
conference website.

The first YOCOCU meeting took place in Rome in 2008, as a small workshop at the Sapienza University. Since then it has grown, increasing the number of participants and becoming a global event. However, the aims of the meetings remain the same:
1) to promote the conservation and valorisation of cultural heritage;
2) to give voice to young professionals and to promote their development
in the sector;
3) to connect senior conservators and young professionals to contribute to the conservation of cultural heritage.
YOCOCU2018 is a forum with the aim to promote the dialogue and partnerships between researchers, conservators and managers on one hand, and civic and community non-governmental organizations on the other. For this reason, it includes special sessions such as Living Lab, dedicated to the participants who can show the products and methods used in their research; Open your art, dedicated to the citizens, the recipients of the divulgation activities; Divulgation events, dedicated to the connection between sponsors, participants and citizens in order to undertake scientific analysis on samples and private objects.
In YOCOCU2018, cultural heritage professionals and researchers and the private sector (citizens, associations, municipalities, cultural heritage institutions) will present their projects, accomplish research and debate future activities and challenges. Together, they will discuss new strategies and establish future priorities. The conference also represents an opportunity for the professional community to realise and learn more about the aims and necessities of civic groups working in the field of cultural heritage and to establish new conservation strategies.
Contributions related to characterisation, diagnostic, conservation and restoration of cultural heritage, archaeometry are welcome. We also encourage participants to work on different topics, e.g. contemporary art, industrial heritage and design, as well as presenting new products, case studies, educational projects and activities. We believe that every single contribution can be of extreme importance for the conference and provide new and interesting approaches to it.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes,
Andrea Macchia
