The Restoration & Conservation 2017 International Conference

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the “Restoration & Conservation 2018” Conference website. We will meet in beautiful Lviv, the cultural capital of Ukraine from 26 to 28 April 2018.

The Conference will attract international keynote speakers and delegates, including restorers, conservators, scientists, historians and art historians, librarians, archivists, students, collection managers and directors from the world’s leading cultural institutions.

The theme of the Conference is “The Modern Approaches in Book and Paper Restoration & Conservation”.

This is an International Conference with aims to bring together professionals in the field of book, musical notes and paper restoration-conservation who fight for the safeguarding and maintenance of our cultural book- and paper-heritage from all over Europe and even further countries.

The “Restoration & Conservation 2018” aims at improving knowledge and update participants from all over the globe with the latest information. The  Conference of the Association of Libraries & Archives of Western Ukraine is scheduled to be held at Lviv Hotel’s Conference Hall in Lviv. The Conference of 2018 will give access to the programme that will consist of cutting edge lectures, informational sessions and much more.

The main question the conference puts forward is: what is needed to preserve our heritage? From the papers handed in, one can already see the variety of problems ranging from conservation theories, to the use of materials which are still not available but are on the wish list, and to further education.

We invite companies and individuals to support this conference, reaching more than 300 librarians, archivists and industry professionals. We value you as partners as we work together to meet the needs of our clients and institutions.
