Eleventh International Conference on Structural Repairs and Maintenance of Heritage Architecture


STREMAH 2009 is the 11th International Conference on Studies, Repairs and Maintenance of Heritage Architecture. The meeting, which has taken place on a regular basis over more than 20 years, has become an event attracting specialists from all over the world. It offers a channel for state-of-the-art technology and the most up-to-date scientific discoveries to be applied to the conservation of our architectural heritage.

The importance of the architectural heritage for the historical identity of a region, town or nation is now widely recognised throughout the world. In order to take care of our heritage we need to look beyond borders and continents to benefit from the experience gained by others and to gain a better understanding of its cultural background.

This series of conferences marks an important contribution as each meeting gathers the most recent advances in research and up-to-date studies of heritage buildings and makes them accessible to wide circles of interested people. STREMAH is now well established as the most important conference of its type.

Journal Submission

Delegates attending STREMAH 2009 will be invited to submit an expanded version of their paper for publication in the International Journal of Sustainable Development and Planning, associated with the Wessex Institute of Technology.

The conference will aim to bring together scholars and professionals to discuss a variety of topics related to architectural and maritime heritage. In addition to the regular topics covered during STREMAH conferences, the meeting will discuss the future of historic harbours, dockyards and other similar maritime structures in today’s world, as well as the function of historic vessels and their heritage value. This leads to problems such as the role of development schemes and the relationship between tourism and maritime heritage and the need to protect the latter by suitable legislation and support initiatives.

Who Should Attend

STREMAH 2009 brings together scientists, architects, curators, engineers, art historians, surveyors, archaeologists and building specialists to exchange opinions and experiences, present the most recent scientific and practical findings, and discuss problems and solutions in relation to studies, repairs and maintenance of heritage buildings.
