XVII International Conference of Conservation-Restoration Studies
Zagreb, 21st – 22nd October 2021 [online event]




The Department of Art Conservation and Restoration of the Academy of Fine Arts, University in Zagreb, is pleased to invite you to the seventeenth International Conference of Conservation-Restoration Studies. The conference will be taking place on October 21st and October 22nd, 2021, and will be held online due to the ongoing health and safety measures.

This conference brings together students of three Croatian universities with conservation-restoration departments (Zagreb, Split, and Dubrovnik), as well as those studying conservation-restoration at foreign higher education institutions. The main objective of the conference is to present practical and research student work or student projects in the field of conservation-restoration carried out in their years of study. All students are welcome to actively participate in the conference and present their work via oral or poster presentation. The presentations are not subject to review on the part of the organizers, which implies that their eligibility and selection is at the discretion of the mentoring teachers.

The conference will be open to the public. The official language of the conference is English. Due to health and safety measures, the conference will be held via the Zoom Video Communication App. The pre-recorded presentations and posters will be streamed during the online meeting, while the Questions & Answers session will be held live. The access link for the Zoom meeting will be sent to all participants via e-mail and will be published on this website.

As the conference has become a biennial event, we would like to inform the students who have graduated after the last conference (Spring of 2019) that they are welcome to participate and present their master’s thesis at this year’s event.
