3rd International SEAHA Conference

Registration is open for the 3rd International Conference on Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage, and Archaeology (SEAHA) at the University of BrightonBrighton, UK on 19-20 June 2017.

This conference follows two successful preceding events at the University College London (2015) and University of Oxford (2016). Each year over 150 delegates were brought together from 20 countries to engage with and discuss emerging trends in the field of heritage science and the on-going dialogue over global issues.

Heritage science is a cross-disciplinary field connecting science and the humanities. It demonstrates the rising interest in and application of interdisciplinary research in the sciences in addition to the challenges with bridging disciplines. Heritage science research is faced with defining and navigating interdisciplinary research, and this is a wider discussion that requires input from scientists, researchers, engineers, professionals, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers. This conference aims to provide a platform to engage and discuss emerging trends in the field and the on-going dialogue over global issues, which define the research and technological applications of heritage scientists.

This year we have encourage presenters to emphasize interdisciplinarity: the challenges, successes, and impacts of research crossing boundaries.
