Due to evolution of the COVID-19 worldwide health emergency, and after a careful consideration of the situation, the Organizing Committee has decided to postpone one year the SAHC 2020 conference. The new dates are September 29-30, and October 1, 2021. The conference will be held at the same venue in Barcelona.

The decision on the postponement of the conference has been indeed a very difficult one. The present situation is very uncertain and celebrating a large event in Autumn 2020 seems at the moment extremely risky or even impossible. In any case, our aim is to ensure a safe event while allowing all attendants to proceed conveniently with their travel plans and reservations.

All the papers submitted and already accepted after the peer review process will be kept for the new dates of the SAHC 2020 conference without any action being necessary from the participants. Submissions of new abstracts and manuscripts are also welcome.

The registration dates are modified as follows:

Deadline for early bird registration and inclusion in indexed conference proceedings - 31 January 2021

Final deadline for registration - 31 May 2021

"New technologies for a sustainable conservation of heritage structures"
