The ultimate aims is to strengthen the foundation of scientific and technological research, overcoming the barriers of exchanging information that not always is published in scientific journals.The participation of researchers and professionals from the archeology-historyconservation- maintenance-restoration areas and the architectural-sciencesengineering areas will stimulate cooperation and integration between otherwise heterogeneous fields.
