Built Heritage 2013: Monitoring Conservation Management


In the framework of the 150th Anniversary of the foundation of the Politecnico di Milano, of Center for the Conservation and Promotion of Cultural Heritage organizes an international Conference to discuss new frontiers about the conservation and enhancement of Built Heritage.
This conference brings together university researchers, professionals and policy makers to illustrate and discuss the most pressing issues concerning the conservation of archaeological, architectural and urban landscapes. In particular, the main goal of the conference is to discuss multi-disciplinary researches on complex Cultural Heritage sites, ranging from archaeological ruins, historical architecture and centers. General and thematic discussions on architectural and archeological Heritage are both encouraged, by taking into account the different points of view of researchers who are engaged in the enhancement of knowledge and practice, and professionals in charge of safeguarding.

Keynote speakers will present case studies representative of challenges and solutions adopted for the analysis, conservation and management of sites.

The main topics of the Conference are:
• multidisciplinary approach for complex case studies;
• cutting edge technologies for surveying, representation and imaging;
• cutting edge technologies for material and structural diagnostic;
• development of risk assessment and protection systems;
