SR2A Program

Agenda SR2A Agenda and Schedule of Events  |  World Science Festival Special Lecture, Sunday, June 3

The program of SR2A-2012 will consist of invited lectures, oral contributions, a poster session and discussion sessions. Session topics will be either method-oriented or problem-oriented. In particular, we welcome contributions that cover the full range of the SR2A scope: challenges from the cultural heritage field, methods developed in the SR domain and new insights through multidisciplinary interactions.

Oral and poster contributions are welcomed on the following material types (but not limited to):

and/or on the use of the following methods of investigation (but not limited to):

and/or about the following problems (but not limited to):

Oral Contributions

Oral contributions will have a duration of 25 minutes, including 5 minutes for questions. Only computer projection facilities will be provided. Presenting authors should contact the chairpersons of their session in advance of the start of their session to signal their presence. They also are requested to familiarize themselves with the controls of the projection system and place their presentations in the appropriate folder BEFORE the start of the session.

The use of the authors own laptops for projection is not encouraged; if absolutely necessary, the presenting authors themselves are responsible to ensure in advance that the projection from their own computer takes place successfully.


Posters will be viewed during one Poster Session, at which the authors are requested to be present for questions and discussion.


Contributions to the conference will be published in a Special Issue of Applied Physics A: Materials Science & Processing. All speakers and poster authors are strongly encouraged to contribute to this special issue of APA. A joint publication of all contributions to SR2A 2012 will strengthen the visibility of this research and promote future applications of synchrotron methods for Art and Archaeology.

The article length is 6-8 pages for oral contributions and 4-6 pages for poster contributions. Exceptions can be made for Invited Papers. The deadline for submission is: July 22, 2012.

Do not hesitate to contact sr2a@bnl.gov for any further questions.

Sunday Program

Worlds within Worlds—The New Science of Digital Attribution

Probe unseen worlds that lie beneath the surfaces of existing masterpieces. Powerful techniques of 21st-century science are advancing and informing the delicate calculations of art historians and restorers, revealing hidden works abandoned by great artists such as Van Gogh and Rembrandt. Joris Dik, Walter Liedtke, and Francesca Casadio discuss the possibilities for collaborations between scientists, curators, and conservators to bring to light important clues and hidden works. The event takes place at the Metropolitan Museum and is moderated by Garrick Utley, senior fellow, Levin Institute, SUNY, and broadcast journalist. This event is presented in collaboration with the World Science Festival, an annual celebration of science and culture, which takes place May 30-June 3 in New York.

Sunday, June 3, 3:00 p.m.–4:30 p.m.
The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium
Free with Museum admission; reservations and tickets are not required. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
