Commission on Crystallography in Art and Cultural Heritage

Workshops

Sixth CrysAC Workshop, Paris, France, 23 August 2022

Topic: Micro- and nano-diffraction for cultural heritage

This workshop invites scientists from research institutions, museums, and conservation bodies, to illustrate state-of-the-art applications of diffraction techniques with sub-micron spatial resolution.

Fifth CrysAC workshop, Vienna, Austria, 17 August 2019

Topic: Crystallography of ancient metals and metal corrosion

This workshop invited scientists from research institutions, museums, and conservation bodies, to illustrate state-of-the-art applications of materials science in the field of archaeometallurgy, diagnostics and conservation of metals, authentication, corrosion processes, and other themes related to ancient metals and metallurgy.

Fourth CrysAC Workshop, Pucon, Chile, 8-9 November 2018

Topic: Characterization of Cultural Heritage and Forensic Materials

The purpose of this workshop was to strengthen the activity that takes place in the Latin American region in the field of characterization of Cultural Heritage and Forensic Science materials. Although the theme of the workshop was centred on the use of X-ray diffraction and fluorescence techniques, applications of other techniques were presented as well.

Topic:  Recent advances in the investigation of ancient mortars and binders

Second CrysAC Workshop, Brno, Czech Republic, 2 June 2017

Topic: Applied crystallography in the study of pigment degradation

The Commission held a Workshop focused on pigment degradation during the 6th interdisciplinary ALMA conference, Painting as a Story, focused on research, technology, history and conservation/restoration of  fine art.

 

First CrysAC Workshop, Krakow, Poland, 18 May 2016

Topic: Cultural heritage authentication and forensic science

The Commission held a Workshop focused on Cultural heritage authentication and forensic science immediately before the 6th meeting on X-ray and other techniques in investigations of the objects of cultural heritage.
