resources available to the conservator, but the various branches of
science fill our tool box with some of the most basic, useful and
diverse implements. Scientific research, chemical and physical
analysis and the study of natural history are a few of the
disciplines that help to provide answers to our conservation

Proposals are invited for presentations that describe the
collaboration between science and conservation. We welcome papers
from those in the science field who have worked to help provide
answers to conservation questions, on conservation treatments, and
research or preventive approaches for conservation in general.
