Heritage science is a cross-disciplinary field connecting science and the humanities. There is an on-going dialogue over global issues, which define the research and technological applications of heritage scientists. The conference aims to provide a platform for scientists, researchers, engineers, professionals, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers, to engage and discuss emerging trends in the field.
