Synchrotron Radiation and Neutrons in Art and Archaeology

February 22–24, 2021
online event

Hosted by Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource and Getty Conservation Institute


SR2A presents:
Hot Topics in Synchrotron Research in Heritage Science

Dear Colleagues,

the in-person conference originally scheduled for February 2021 is postpone to a future date (TBD) given the persistent uncertainties related to COVID-19. During these unprecedented times we feel strongly that keeping the scientific and professional community engaged and active is paramount.

We are pleased to announce a virtual event that will offer a platform for discussing and explore recent advancements and applications of synchrotron radiation in the field of cultural heritage studies.

The 3-day online event will take place on February 22-24, 2021.
It will offer keynote lectures on Development in Instrumentation and Analysis, and Recent Applications to Cultural Heritage Materials, and a workshop on data analysis.
The event is free of charge, but registration is required.

Registration is now closed

SR2A 2021 brings together archaeologists, conservation scientists, conservators, geochemists, materials scientists, and researches from all disciplines with experience in large-scale research facilities, as well as curators, cultural heritage managers, art historians, and potential users of synchrotrons in a unique and highly stimulating environment for discussion and networking on the innovative use of synchrotron and neutron radiation to investigate cultural heritage materials and artifacts.
