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.

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.
