Museum SOS: Strategies for Emergency Response and Salvage

This spring the American Museum of Natural History will host the
19th annual meeting of the Society for the Preservation of Natural
History Collections May 11-16, 2004.  The theme of the meeting
centers on emergency preparedness, response and salvage and papers
on this topic are invited.  For the general session papers are also
being solicited on the theme of "bridge building", whether within an
institution or collaboration between individuals, departments,
institutions or other relevant organizations.  Papers of general
interest to the SPNHC audience that do not fall under either theme
will also be considered.

inclusion in the program, an abstract must be submitted before
Wednesday, February 18, 2004.  Please follow the abstract submission
instructions below.

preliminary findings, innovations from a related field, or student
