The Conservation Science Annual at the Eastern Analytical Symposium

The annual mid-November Eastern Analytical Symposium always offers a
very rich scientific Program and commercial Exposition in scientific
analytical methods and technologies, in a collegial conference
atmosphere, and EAS always includes interesting programming on the
modern study and care of cultural heritage.

In 2012 and since 1994, New York Conservation Foundation's
Conservation Science Annual invited sessions at EAS are
sophisticated yet accessible symposia, not to be missed. This year
the Monday CSA oral program features current applications of mass
spectroscopy. Tuesday's CSA oral program, together with the
Wednesday and Thursday CSA short course, informally comprise a rare
and stellar seminar on understanding and cleaning modern paint and
on aqueous systems in the Modular Cleaning Program--on very current
methods and technologies for examination, characterization and

CSA programs always provide a very congenial context for the
scientists, conservators, students--all who attend. Come for any or
all of the CSA, and also take advantage of other EAS offerings
relevant to your needs and interests: seminars, short courses, Oral
Program entire technical sessions, or specific presentations. Please
search the Oral Program and Short Courses links below, on keywords
"conservation," "microscopy," "forensic" and others!

Modular Cleaning Program Accelerated Course

    CSA Short Courses (see below, and follow EAS' link above)
    emphasize practical and economical problem-solving topics with
    material that you can take home and immediately apply to your
    daily work.

E12-30. The Modular Cleaning Program: An Accelerated Course for
Conservators; organized in cooperation with the New York
Conservation Foundation

    New Two-Day Course E12-30
    Wednesday and Thursday, November 14-15, 2012
    8:30am - 8:00pm
    Mr. Chris Stavroudis
    Paintings Conservator in Private Practice, Los Angeles CA

    Course description: This two-day short course is designed for
    conservators to gain a solid foundation in the theory and
    practice of formulating aqueous cleaning solutions, solvent
    gels, and polymer-stabilized emulsions. Participants will
    receive information on cleaning and solvent theory through
    lectures and readings. They will also learn how the Modular
    Cleaning Program stock solutions and computer database assist in
    formulating effective cleaning strategies. During lab time
    participants will prepare many of the aqueous stock solutions
    (some will have been prepared ahead of time), become proficient
    with the MCP computer database and learn to use the MCP to fine
    tune the cleaning of test paintings. Participants will take away
    a complete set of the aqueous stock solutions including bottles
    of aqueous concentrate solutions, and Pemulen stock gels.

        Who should attend: Practicing conservators who work with
        painted surfaces and desire more options and skills in
        cleaning those surfaces. Recommended that each student bring
        a lap top computer (Windows XP, Vista or 7; Mac OS X 10.4.7
        or higher) to run the Modular Cleaning Program database.

About the instructor

    Mr. Chris Stavroudis has been developing and improving the
    Modular Cleaning Program for more than 10 years. Based on the
    work of Richard Wolbers, the MCP is both a database program and
    an approach to cleaning works of art. Stavroudis received
    undergraduate degrees in Chemistry and Art History from the
    University of Arizona and a Master's Degree in Art Conservation
    specializing in Paintings Conservation from the
    Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation.
    He has offered the MCP workshop 20 times to more than 350
    conservators in 5 countries. The MCP software has over 1200
    registered users worldwide.

The Eastern Analytical Symposium always offers an extremely rich
program and commercial Exposition of analytical science, and a
collegial conference atmosphere. Attend for any or all parts of the
Conservation Science Annual, and also take advantage of other EAS
offerings whether seminars, short courses, sessions or specific

Please feel free to contact me or any CSA session chairperson or
instructor with comments or questions about this year's Conservation
Science Annual program at EAS. The Foundation welcomes suggestions
for future CSA symposia, too.
