Announcing the International Conference on Indoor Air Quality in Heritage and Historic Environments (IAQ 2024)
The Department of Scientific Research at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is pleased to organize the 16th International Conference on Indoor Air Quality in Heritage and Historic Environments, IAQ 2024. The conference is a forum for discussions on the influence of indoor air quality on objects in museums, libraries, and archives. It is traditionally attended by a diverse audience of conservators, curators, scientists, students and other stakeholders.
IAQ 2024 will be held in a hybrid format; we encourage all attendees to join us in New York City at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Talks and posters will also be streamed online for participants who cannot attend in person.
We look forward to welcoming you to New York!
