ECPN Poster Lightning Round

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Emerging Conservation Professionals Network (ECPN) is excited to host our first Poster Session Lightning Round! This fun and informal event will highlight the contributions of emerging conservation professionals to the Annual Meeting Poster Session. Selected participants will each give a very short presentation—essentially an "elevator pitch”—on their poster topic and have an opportunity to field questions from colleagues.

The posters featured during the Lightning Round represent a wide range of specializations, types of collections, and areas of scientific research. Join us to hear authors discuss the conservation treatments of comic books, clocks, costumes, a Hopi doll and Victorian dollhouses. Attendees will gain insight into the challenges faced in addressing bedbug infestations and establishing documentation practices in archives, and learn about innovative materials used for varnish removal on Old Master paintings and for loss compensation in Modern design objects. Exciting advances in material characterization techniques and successful interdisciplinary collaborations will also be presented. 

Conference attendees at any career stage are welcome and encouraged to attend this event! We invite participants and audience members to stay for a Happy Hour reception immediately after the event.
