Publications

Our regular conferences aim to bring together professionals and academics to exchange knowledge relating to the theory and practice of conservation and restoration. We maintain a strong focus on publishing the proceedings of our conferences, and these publications now combine to form a growing corpus of literature. The following is a (still incomplete) list of these previous conferences, and where the published proceedings may be found:
