February 20, 2020 | Submission of final paper



Florence Heri-Tech was launched in 2018 by the Department of Industrial Engineering of University of Florence (DIEF) and Florence Biennial Art and Restoration Fair. The idea was to create a synergy between Cultural Heritage and New Technologies. The Conference involves a large number of research projects and scholars from around the world and puts the industry's current issues under the spotlight, specifically on issues related to innovative techniques and technologies for Cultural Heritage. The Conference is part of the Florence Biennial Art and Restoration Fair, an international event attracting prestigious institutions and companies and creating a unique opportunity to bring together the academic word with industry. The city of Florence will therefore be the international heart of Restoration and Cultural and Environmental assets as well as a forum for meeting and discussing for experts and enthusiasts from around the world. The Conference will be a significant opportunity for exchange between researchers and companies for the promotion of productive excellence.



In particular this year there will be special sections dedicated to Geomatics 4 water-related CH (3D acquisition methods and systems for totally or partially submerged Cultural Heritage. Monitoring of underwater Cultural Heritage for planned conservation and risk protection. More), European Funds for Cultural Heritage (Success cases. Ongoing projects. Opportunities and Perspectives.) and Cultural heritage Microbiomes.


The full paper must have a maximum of 8 pages included references
