Dear Colleague,

We are happy to invite you to actively participate in Art&Archaeology2016, the International Conference to be held in Jerusalem, December 2016. It follows our successful Jerusalem Conference ART2008.

The main objective of Art&Archaeology2016 is to advance the frontiers of scientific knowledge connected with human cultural heritage. Heritage is our legacy from the past. It is our source for understanding the human mind, its capabilities and potential. Knowledge of the past influences our present day life and what we pass on to future generations.

Art&Archaeology2016 aims to bring together a range of scholars, specialists and experts in the fields of archaeology, art, history, preservation, restoration and reconstruction of museum or archaeological objects, cultural heritage, researchers of ancient structures and measurement scientists and technologists. Cultural heritage is characterized by time-spatial scales and a wide range of technologies are applied to understand and preserve our archaeological, historic and artistic patrimony.

The Art&Archaeology2016 conference seeks to encourage communication between these disciplines, to provide a survey of present work in the field, and to stimulate discussions.

We believe that synergy between the experts will yield further developments, adaption and adoption of measurement methods to deal with challenges of culture heritage research. The knowledge to be gained will provide understanding in more depth and dimensions of the human genius.

We look forward to your participation in Art&Archaeology2016, enlightening us with your paper or poster presentation and enjoying the entertaining social and cultural events in Jerusalem and in Israel.

Jerusalem, the holy site of three great monotheistic religions, provides a unique atmosphere of a modern vibrant society living alongside the archaeology and historical sites since the time of King David. It guarantees to provide you with an unforgettable experience.

With best regards,
Prof. Amos Notea
Conference Chair
