Dear Friends and Fellow Researchers,

On behalf of the Organizing committee, we are pleased to announce that the conference “New Trends in Cultural Heritage Biodeterioration” is to be held in Coimbra, Portugal on September 5-7, 2018.

While focused on the Biodeterioration of Cultural Heritage Biodeterioration, different topics will be addressed in this conference, varying from particular case studies in different materials and repositories, to new techniques being developed for the study and analysis of biodeterioration processes, application of different biocides and consolidants to delay ongoing degradation, or even a look into the entrepreneurship possibilities and related policies in what concerns biodeterioration and conservation sciences.

As usual, Scientists will be able to share their work and opinions with other field experts, expand their network and establish new collaborations with other participants from all around the world.

We look forward to seeing you in September 2018!
