IAASF 2023 Conference

A decision has been made by the International Arts and Antiquities Security Forum (IAASF) planning committee to announce that the conference due to take place at the Het Scheepvaartmuseum (National Maritime Museum) in Amsterdam in September 2022 will be rescheduled for the 6th and 7th of March 2023.

This decision has been made following an unprecedented demand for operational services across Europe since February 2022 and the potential risks that the war in Ukraine has brought to the world. The theme of the revised event will be 'Protecting Cultural Heritage in Times of Uncertainty' to allow us to demonstrate our solidarity with the cultural community of Ukraine. 

Therefore, we are happy to announce an additional Call for Speakers to ensure the theme is discussed with a range of diverse speakers. This also allows anyone who missed the previous deadline a chance to submit their abstracts.

Further information and announcements regarding the event will follow over the coming months. In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding the conference, please contact the IAASF Coordinator Louise Williamson.
