Welcome to Ljubljana

Welcome to Ljubljana

Ljubljana is a great place to visit, it has history, tradition, style, arts, culture, and an atmosphere that is both Central European and Mediterranean; those who know it better would also add the adjectives multilingual and hospitable. Being close to many of major sights and attractions of Slovenia, Ljubljana can...

Dear Colleagues, we are pleased to invite you to attend the 7th International Congress on the Application of Raman Spectroscopy in Art and Archaeology (RAA 2013). The congress will be organised by The Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia and will take place in Ljubljana, 2 – 6 September 2013.

The RAA congress is one of the most important events in the field of scientific research on cultural heritage, worldwide, as it is a gathering of many scientists from the most prestigious institutions. It has a long tradition, starting in London (2001), and followed by Ghent (2003), Paris (2005), Modena (2007), Bilbao (2009), and Parma (2011). During all these events, many valuable presentations (oral and poster) on the development of Raman spectroscopy in the cultural heritage field have been introduced, which resulted in a great advancement on the application of the technique to the field. The importance and the quality of the Congress are further evidenced by the publication of the scientific contributions in Special Issues of a respectable spectroscopic periodical Journal of Raman Spectroscopy (John Wiley & Sons, Inc.) following each of the Congresses.

For the RAA 2013 edition, you are invited to address the topics such as material characterization and degradation processes, contamination affecting the cultural heritage, surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy of biological and organic materials, palaeontology and palaeoenvironment, new Raman instrumentation and applications, forensic applications in art and archaeology, etc.

On behalf of the organizing committee,
