10th International Conference on Indoor Air Quality in Heritage and Historic Environments

Friday 23 December 2011 (Categories: Non ICOM/ICOM-CC, Scientific Research, Sculpture, Polychromy and Architectural Decoration)

The IAQ International Scientific Committee have the pleasure to announce a Round Table discussion on the topic of “Standards and guidelines: hindrance or help?”, led by Professor May Cassar, UCL Centre for Sustainable Heritage.


The aim of this Roundtable is to explore the relationship of heritage science with standards and guidelines. How is the evidence produced by heritage science contributing to the development of standards and guidelines? Are standards and guidelines of help, and if so, how and to whom? Are they of hindrance, and if so, how and to whom? Are standards and guidelines the same, or do they have a different purpose? The plethora of standards and guidelines in recent years suggests that they have an important purpose. The Roundtable will explore these questions and others in relation to the theme of this conference.


The Round Table will be organised on 20th June 2012 as part of the programme of the 10th International Conference on Indoor Air Quality in Heritage and Historic Environments at University College London, Centre for Sustainable Heritage, London:
