Workshop on Geo Engineering for Conservation of Cultural Heritage Paris, September 6th 2013 – Conference Room VI, UNESCO palace

by ATC19 and World Heritage Center [Asian Regional Technical Committee for Cultural Heritage and Historical Site]

Scope and Aims of Workshop:

Geotechnical Engineering is one of the fundamental and important fields for Conservation of Cultural Heritage At the same time, conservation needs interdisciplinary approach from such various fields of geology, geomorphology, archaeology, geophysics, geochemistry, and conservator The Workshop provided a good chance for researchers in different fields to get together at one place to and to exchange experiences and new understandings.
