The conservation-restoration program of the University of Antwerp organizes the 14th International Conference on Indoor Air Quality in Heritage and Historic Environments. The conference is a common forum for a fruitful discussion on the influence of the indoor air quality on historic objects. It is traditionally attended by a varied audience of conservators, curators, archaeologists, scientists, students and other stakeholders. 


The conference will take place in the historical centre of Antwerp, Belgium.
