Dear Colleague,

We are happy to invite you to actively participate in the third Art&Archaeology International Conference to be held in Jerusalem, December 9-12, 2018.

The main objective of Art&Archaeology2018 is to bring to light recent R&D results in the analysis methods that advance the frontiers of 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.

The conference will focus on novel and new breakthrough methods and technologies for measuring and analysis that contribute to deeper and better understanding of human cultural heritage, our archaeological, historic and artistic patrimony. It seeks to do so by encouraging communication between art, archaeology, destructive and nondestructive evaluation disciplines; providing a survey of present work in the field and stimulating discussions and new joint research projects.

Art&Archaeology2018 aims to bring together a spectrum 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 as well as measurement scientists and technologists. We believe that synergy between experts in various fields will yield further developments, adaptations 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.

I am pleased to report that AIPnD will once again be partnering with us, as was the case for the first conference in 2008. We look forward to their contributions to the program.

We look forward to you participating in Art&Archaeology2018, enlightening us with your paper or poster presentation and enjoying the entertaining social and cultural events in Jerusalem and in Israel. Join colleagues from many countries and different disciplines and enrich your horizon.

We have chosen Jerusalem, a 3,000-year old city which has been the birthplace of the three great monotheistic religions. Its uniqueness, lying in the meeting of past and present, makes it an ideal city to tour. The atmosphere of a modern and vibrant society living among sites of major historical and religious significance dating back to the time of King David  is guaranteed to provide you with an unforgettable experience.

With best regards,
Prof. Amos Notea
Conference Chair
