Description

The International Congress on the Deterioration and Conservation of Stone is a quadrennial event that brings together the worldwide community of researchers, managers and practitioners who are concerned about the conservation of cultural stone structures and objects. The first congress was held in La Rochelle in 1972, and then Athens (1976), Venice (1979 and 2000), Louisville (1982), Lausanne (1985), Torun (1988 and 2008), Lisbon (1992), Berlin (1996), Stockholm (2004) and New York in 2012. So, it was held triennially in the early years but since '88 it standardised on a four year cycle. It attracts a truly international audience, and since 1988 in Torun, attendance has averaged 270 participants presenting 150 papers. The conference proceedings have become the standard state-of-the-art documentation of the innovations and development in the field of stone conservation science.
