The international conference TECHNART 2013 was jointly organized by TECHNART and ICOM-CC Scientific Working Group. The goal of TECHNART 2013 was to provide a scientific forum for analytical and conservation scientists to advance and apply analytical spectroscopic techniques to materials in art and archaeology. Materials are interpreted in a broad sense implying paint media, pigments and dyes, stones, metals, glass, ceramics, resins, wood, textiles and synthetic materials.
TECHNART 2013 was hosted at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
All oral and poster presenters were invited to contribute full papers based on the work being presented for publication in this themed series.
