CALL FOR ABSTRACTS | Deadline June 30th

The RECH6 will bring together different scientific and practical perspectives on chromatic reintegration. Recognizing the complexity and plurality of retouching in the different fields of conservation and restoration, the conference will discuss recent or ongoing research works in different geographies and cultural contexts.

We invite scholars, independent researchers to submit proposals for:

- Communication with a 15 minute online presentation

- Poster presentation with a 4 minute online presentation, Flash Talks

For both proposals authors must focus on one of the following topics:

 Contemporary criteria on chromatic reintegration

 Chromatic reintegration: museums and private context

 Documentation of chromatic reintegration process

 Materials and techniques experiences

 Matching Colours

 Digital technologies as resources for the chromatic reintegration process

 Algorithms and artificial intelligence in chromatic reintegration projects

Abstract guidelines have to be submitted HERE


All oral presentations have been allocated a 20 minute time slot, including the presentation itself and transitioning to the next speaker.

It is recommended that speakers plan on a 15 minute presentation. To save some precious time, DO AVOID lengthy introductions bearing in mind that your audience will be rather familiar with the theme of your speech.
