3rd Meeting of Metals and Composite Objects Conservation

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 3rd National Meeting of Metals and Composite Objects Conservation organised for the first time by both the National Maritime Museum and the National Museum in Gdańsk.

The organisers have returned after a four year break with new ideas to unite conservators, museum employees and conservation scientists. This year's meeting will take place for the first time in collaboration with the National Museum in Gdańsk, on 12th-13th April 2018. The first day of the meeting will be at the Shipwreck Conservation Centre in Tczew – a branch of the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk. The second day's programme will be conducted at the Maritime Culture Centre in Gdańsk - the branch of the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk and the National Museum in Gdańsk.

The programme of the meeting will be divided into following sessions:

Case Studies

  • Assessment methodologies such as the application of scientific techniques to further understanding of metal objects or assist in their conservation
  • Archaeological and historical metal conservation (from both terrestrial and marine contexts)
  • Conservation of outdoor sculpture and architectural metalwork
  • In situ conservation of large or complex objects
  • Conservation of composite objects
  • Conservation of military objects

Research and Treatment Development

  • An application of analytical methods in order to solve complex conservation problems of metal objects
  • Progress in conservation treatments such as stabilization techniques, cleaning, corrosion inhibitors, preventative conservation, risk management analysis
  • New approaches in metal protection
  • Conservation of wrought and cast iron
  • Ethical considerations in metals conservation
  • Documentation of metal objects and structures such as 3D reality capture, finite element analysis

An exchange of knowledge and good practice
Similarly to the two previous editions of the National Meeting Metals and Composite Objects Conservation, the third edition enables conservators, museum's employees, scientists, students and other specialists to exchange knowledge, experience and good practice in conservation.

The third edition of the meeting
This year's two day meeting includes a series of presentations divided into two sessions, poster session, workshops and visit to branches of the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk – the Shipwreck Conservation Centre in Tczew and Maritime Culture Centre in Gdańsk as well as the National Museum in Gdańsk. In the 3rd edition of the meeting the organisers have invited representatives of the Szewalski Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery from the Polish Academy of Sciences, who will present an introduction to laser cleaning of cultural objects and lead a discussion with participants. One of the objects that will undergo laser cleaning is a gilded copper alloy statue of saint John and the dragon from the National Museum in Gdańsk.

We look forward to meeting you!
