Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a paper for further review and possible inclusion in a conference proceedings that will be published by the University Press of New England. (Submission of a paper is not required to present at the conference.)
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Silvio Mendes Zancheti, Director of the Center for Advanced Studies in Integrated Conservation (CECI) and Professor in the Department of Architecture and Urbanism at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE) in Brazil.
