WELCOME

Welcome to the web pages of the International Scientific Committee for Stone (ISCS). Our purpose is to promote knowledge about the preservation and conservation of inorganic porous building materials (IPBM), such as natural and artificial stones. For more details of our activities, see our Goals, Workplan and Statutes (or select these topics from the drop-down menu).
