Over 50 speakers and panellists will be attending Lipton Hall at New York University's Law School representing museums, auction houses, law enforcement agencies, art historians, legal professionals, victims and scientists.
Each day of the conference will address a particular theme, focusing on stolen art, looting and spoliation, and forgeries respectively, and end with a panel discussion on possible solutions.
The event is organised by Jane CH Jacob, art historian and provenance research expert at Jacob Fine Art, Chris Marinello, director and founder of Art Recovery Group, and Alice Farren-Bradley of Museum Security Network.
Marinello said: "With this annual conference we have been aiming to establish the 'Davos of the art market' - a focused discussion of the real issues in art and cultural heritage and the practical solutions to solving them. This year's programme is the strongest we've had."
