Presentation

Many universities have a rich historic, artistic, scientific and technical heritage which shows their diverse academic and research activity. The importance of this cultural heritage has led to the foundation of numerous university museums and collections. These institutions were created with the aim to preserve and make accessible objects, specimens and artefacts of enormous value. International Organizations such as ICOM-UMAC (University Museums and Collections) and UNIVERSEUM (European Academic Heritage Network), have worked to raise awareness of the importance of university heritage and to implement new management methods and promotional approaches.


One of the objectives of the Cultural Heritage cluster of the International Campus of Excellence (CEI) – Campus Moncloa is to work to establish strategies to improve the management, conservation, restoration and promotion of Cultural Heritage. With this purpose in mind the CEI and the Complutense and Technical Universities of Madrid have organized an international congress with the theme “University Museums and Collections: Tradition and Future”. We believe that it is essential to create national and international networks to enhance cooperation, exchange proposals, discuss challenges and disseminate knowledge regarding academic heritage.


We invite you to participate in the Congress which will take place from December 3 to 5, 2014 at the Ciudad Universitaria (Madrid). Proposals can be presented for oral communications or poster presentations.


The topics will cover the following subjects:



Thematic areas

  1. Research in university museums and collections
  2. Dissemination of information about university museums and collections
  3. Conservation and restoration projects applied to university museums and collections
  4. University collections as artistic collections
  5. The management of university museums and collections
  6. Other topics


Communications and round table discussions

The Congress will feature international speakers for the opening sessions and renowned experts have been invited to participate in the round tables discussions.


The congress languages are English and Spanish. The oral communications will be 15 minutes in length. The presentation of posters will take place on December 4.


Communications and poster abstracts will not exceed 2000 characters and should be submitted by September 15. A short biography should be also included.
