International Conference on Preventive Conservation at Nanjing, China, 29-30 October 2011

International Conference on Preventive Conservation at Nanjing, China, 29-30 October 2011


International Conference on Preventive Conservation of Architectural Heritage, 29-30 October, 2011, Nanjing, China

The challenge identified in the conservation field today is about assuring heritage preservation through preventive conservation, maintenance and monitoring based strategies. Timely identification and correction of defects can prevent major consequential damage, which may lead to heavy investments in order to bring the listed or valuable non listed building back into a good state of repair. Monitoring systems allow public authorities, owners and site managers to ascertain that maintenance is carried out on a regular basis and that the budgets are spent effectively at the long run, also after restoration. When regular maintenance is carried out the preservation of historic buildings will be more cost effective at the long run. As a result of systematic collection of information during the regular inspections (monitoring of the state of repair) it becomes possible to compare and monitor the state of preservation of the cultural heritage "stock". Collected statistic data can also be used as a management tool as well as for research.


As the annual symposium of the UNESCO chair on "preventive conservation, monitoring, maintenance of the architectural heritage", this conference is held by the Key Laboratory of Urban and Architectural Heritage Conservation at Southeast University (China), in cooperation with UNESCO Asia-Pacific World Heritage Training and Research Sub-center in Suzhou(China), The Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (RLICC) at the K.U.Leuven (Belgium) and Monumentenwacht Vlaanderen vzw (Belgium).
