Editors  Joyce H. TownsendLucia TonioloFrancesca Cappitelli

Conservation Science 2007 was organised jointly by the Institute of Conservation (Icon) Heritage Science Group (formerly the Institute of Conservation Science, ICS, at the time the conference was first planned), the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, and the University of Milan, Italy, and held at the Politecnico di Milano 10-11 May 2007. This was the second ICS conference: Conservation Science 2002 (Archetype Publications 2003) was held in Edinburgh, UK, in 2002.

Conservation Science 2007 had four aims:

-To initiate a debate about the meaning of 'a conservation scientist' around the world

-To present the best new research in conservation science

-To address themes not covered by recent conferences

-Knowledge transfer, networking and communication

Almost all of the papers from the plenary session From science laboratory to conservation practice, both papers and poster abstracts from the three working sessions on Developments in conservation practice, Non-destructive testing, Paper, wood and other polymers and posters on the theme of Architecture are published here. The 30 papers have all been peer reviewed. This volume provides a valuable overview of current research being carried out worldwide in conservation science.

Papers from the conference held in Milan, Italy 10-11 May 2007.
