imageA Conference, an IEEE Workshop on Advances in the Turin Shroud Investigation will be held  at the University of Bari Piazza Umberto, September 4 & 5, 2014. According to the IEEE website:

The workshop is aimed at providing an unprecedented opportunity to share new research results to all researchers interested in contributing to the scientific studies on the Turin Holy Shroud. The workshop is focused on the use of methodologies and technologies within the IEEE fields of interest for the advancement of knowledge in this world-wide appealing subject.

It looks to be a small conference; according to the website attendance is set at 25. Also from the website:

  • Abstract submission deadline: 09 May 2014
  • Final submission deadline: 25 Jul 2014
  • Notification of acceptance date: 25 Jun 2014

I wonder if this will have any impact, positive or otherwise, on the St. Louis conference at roughly the same time.
