Funded under: FP5-EESD

Abstract

The conference was initiated under the French Presidency by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication in collaboration with the European Commission's Directorate-General for Research.

This volume contains the proceedings of the conference, including 26 individual papers and a round table discussion. It is the first time within this series of conferences that the authors' contributions have been gathered into a single publication. The papers are grouped under six main topics, corresponding to the different sessions that were held during the course of the conference:

- How do we assess pollutant damage and achieve a balance between costs and benefits?
- What is the scope for using optical technologies for cultural heritage conservation?
- How do we reconcile the sustainable development of cities with the preservation of cultural heritage?
- Conservation materials: treatment compatibility, re-treatment or reversibility?
- Microclimates within museums, churches, libraries and archives: for better or for worse?
- How do we balance tourism with sustainable exploitation and management of cultural heritage?
