May 19-23, 2014
Los Angeles

Jointly hosted by the Getty Conservation Institute and the University of California Los Angeles, ISA 2014 will draw on examples and best practices from interdisciplinary research at the interface between the natural sciences, engineering and archaeology to reconstruct and understand human behavior through the study of material culture.

This symposium will be a valuable opportunity to apply and demonstrate the latest research and findings of archaeometric research on a broad range of topics across time and space. It brings together internationally renowned archaeological scientists and archaeologists with museum professionals, conservation scientists, policy-makers, representatives from nongovernmental organizations and industry, natural scientists, engineers, and other interested groups to discuss new findings and innovations in technology and scientific research, and address current and global challenges in archaeology and cultural property ranging from the looting and illicit trafficking of antiquities to the archaeology of transitional periods.
