Participation of students who are not in their final year of study


The practice so far has shown that the presentations at the conference are mostly delivered by final year students who focus on their thesis, and present the work on an object or part of their research. Because of this, students who are at an earlier stage of their study, and who may not have yet begun 'concrete' work on objects, often mistakenly think they do not have a sufficiently interesting topic to present at a conference. We would like to remind all students that the purpose of the conference is to exchange knowledge and experiences that are not necessarily related to the physical work on the object.

For all  students who are NOT at their final year of study, and who would like to present at the Conference but may not be sure which topic to choose, we have prepared a list of topics that they can process and present (in a talk or as a poster). The list serves to make it easier for the students to choose a topic, but they can still come up with and process a topic that interests them, which may not be included in this list.

Suggested topics:

  1. Study during isolation – experiences with online study (it is desirable that students from different universities collaborate and make a presentation to show the differences in approach, positive, and negative experiences).
  2. Extracurricular activities in addition to study (volunteering/fieldwork/practice abroad ...).
  3. Erasmus experiences.
  4. Proposal of works or investigative works on some examples.
  5. Presentations from the field - CAPuS project, work in the Museum of Ancient Glass, restoration of Gregory of Nin, Salon, etc. (for the processing of these topics requires the consent of the mentor).
  6. Ways of mapping damage and graphic documentation.
  7. Possibilities of presenting objects (museum presentation, outdoor presentation, digital presentation, etc.)
  8. Changing the approach to artwork conservation after enrolling in college (for example, cleaning iron with Coca-Cola and many other wrong ways of caring for works of art that are widespread, which we ourselves may have used before enrolment).
  9. For whom do we restore? (Ethical issues of reintegration, the extent to which it is being restored, museum approach to objects still in use ...).
  10. Why is it necessary to know the technology of making a work of art/object and how does it help us during the treatment?
  11. What is the need for art subjects in the study of restoration conservation, and what new technical skills should a conservator-restorer possess (for example knowledge of 3D design ...)?

We ask students who decide to process and present one of the suggested topics to contact the Organizing Committee (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) as soon as possible so that the topic can be removed from the list (to avoid repetition of topics).

When sending the application, the students are kindly aksed to write the name of the topic in the subject line of the email.

The processing of these topics (other than those dealing with project work as stated in topic no. 5) does not require the consent of a mentor. When filling in the application form in the field in which the name of the mentor is entered, it is necessary to enter "Organizing Committee" instead of the mentor (not members individually, but the Organizing Committee as the body responsible for your topic).

After receiving the application, the Organizing Committee will review it and correct it if necessary.

The Organizing Committee is at your disposal for any additional questions!
