Conference: Indoor Air Quality in Heritage and Historic Environments


The IAQ International Scientific Committee and UCL Centre for Sustainable Heritage have the pleasure to announce the 10th International Conference on Indoor Air Quality in Heritage and Historic Environments,


University College London, Centre for Sustainable Heritage

London, UK, 17th – 20th June, 2012


The conference is the 10th in the series of conferences dedicated to the research and knowledge exchange in the field of indoor air quality in historic and heritage environments in museums, galleries, archives, libraries and historic houses. The IAQ series was set up in 1998 to advance knowledge of pollutants and their effects on heritage collections. Since then, the remit of IAQ conferences has expanded to cover indoor environment-induced degradation, pollutant mitigation, climate control and modelling, air quality monitoring, air quality standards and guidelines. Both applied and original research contributions are highly welcome, including reviews of relevant research topics. Presentations by conservators, curators and museum professionals are as welcome as those by scientists.


In 2012, on behalf of IAQ, UCL Centre for Sustainable Heritage is particularly pleased to host this important event. The focal topic of IAQ 2012 is “Standards and Guidelines”, reflecting the amount of recent activity and the needs of heritage stakeholders. Presentations are therefore invited particularly if they cover research and applications underpinning the development of standards and guidelines.


Please see the website for details on registration, abstract submission and fees. Please book your place at the conference, which is likely to be oversubscribed, and your accommodation early.


The abstract submission deadline is 5 Jan 2012.
