The main objective of Art&Archaeology2016 is to advance the frontiers of scientific knowledge connected with human cultural heritage. Heritage is our legacy from the past. It is our source for understanding the human mind, its capabilities and potential. Knowledge of the past influences our present day life and what we pass on to future generations.

Art&Archaeology2016 aims to bring together a range of scholars, specialists and experts in the fields of archaeology, art, history, preservation, restoration and reconstruction of museum or archaeological objects, cultural heritage, researchers of ancient structures and measurement scientists and technologists. Cultural heritage is characterized by time-spatial scales and a wide range of technologies are applied to understand and preserve our archaeological, historic and artistic patrimony.

The Art&Archaeology2016 conference seeks to encourage communication between these disciplines, to provide a survey of present work in the field, and to stimulate discussions.
