By using and developing science to understand, manage and communicate the human story expressed through landscape, buildings and artefacts, heritage science encourages the humanities and sciences to collaborate and strengthen each other.” – UK National Heritage Science Strategy

We are delighted to announce the 3rd International Conference on Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage, and Archaeology (SEAHA) at the University of Brighton, Brighton, UK on 19-20 June 2017.

Register here! 


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.

Call for Breakout Session Proposals

We are currently requesting proposals for conference breakout sessions. Due to the success and popularity of the breakout sessions at the 2016 SEAHA Conference, we would like to offer a similar experience this year. The programme will include two one-hour sessions designed to provide hands on experience, an inside look, a demo or discussion opportunity to conference attendees. We are looking for people to run sessions that will fit the scope of the conference. Sessions could take the form of a workshop, tour, discussion, or training. Here is a full list of sessions from last year.

Proposals should include a description of your session, its relevance for the conference, a list of involved people and their affiliations, space requirements, and equipment needed. Proposals should be no longer than 500 words and can be sent to  seaha.conference.2017@gmail.com by 31 March.

Student Travel Bursaries

The Icon Heritage Science Group (HSG) is offering two student travel bursaries for up to £150 each to contribute towards transportation and accommodation costs for attending the 3rd International SEAHA Conference.

Interested students should submit a brief statement including an explanation about why it is important to participate in the conference and how the conference would benefit your research and education. Statements should be sent to events@seaha-cdt.ac.uk by May 5, 2017. The received statements will be reviewed by the Student Committee and Icon HSG and notification of awards provided by mid May.

Priorities will be given to students contributing an oral presentation or poster at the conference. Students awarded the travel bursary will be expected to write an article for the ICON newsletter or the Icon blog following the event. Accommodation reimbursement will be capped at £40 per night and the bursary is only for transportation and accommodation costs.


For all enquiries, please contact the conference committee at events@seaha-cdt.ac.uk.


The conference is organised by the SEAHA student committee on behalf of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage, and Archaeology (SEAHA CDT) and is endorsed by the Institute of Conservation (ICON) Heritage Science Group and the National Heritage Science Forum (NHSF).
