Indoor Air Quality in Heritage and Historic Environments

The IAQ2020 Call for Abstracts is open. 


The conference discusses the impact of indoor air quality on heritage objects.

Contributions are welcome on new trends in pollution monitoring, understanding the levels of risk to collections, material emissions, and building refurbishment as a mitigation action. Furthermore, we encourage contributions that discuss practical case studies in museums, archives or churches (e.g., decision making, implementation of mitigation actions, use of showcases, etc.).
