Related Meeting Information
The Scientific Methods in Cultural Heritage Research Gordon Research Seminar will be held in conjunction with the Scientific Methods in Cultural Heritage Research Gordon Research Conference. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GRS. Please refer to the Scientific Methods in Cultural Heritage Research GRC web page for more information.

Meeting Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Scientific Methods in Cultural Heritage Research is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is to explore innovative analytical methods and materials relevant to cultural heritage research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: non-destructive spectroscopy and imaging, non-traditional conservation materials and methodologies, and pertinent surface and materials science research.

Application Instructions

The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.

The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 26, 2014. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
