NYCF Conservation Science AnnualDate: November 14 - 15, 2017
2017 Conservation Science Annual, November 14-15, 2017, near NYC and Princeton, NJ, USA
In its 23rd year, our two day symposium presents three sessions and two lunchtime discussions, this year on Science and Technology for Vibration Affecting Collections Within Buildings and In Transport. Please note next to last below, that a recently added CSA closing session including two talks on conservation science and one on a new adhesive, memorializes a long time key EAS Executive Board member the late Herk Felder, ever a stalwart advocate of our cultural heritage sessions at EAS.
EAS including the CSA has moved to the Crowne Plaza Princeton Conference Center in Plainsboro, New Jersey, USA, November 13-15, 2017. The most convenient airport is Liberty International, EWR.
