Posters are a great way to convey your project through verbal and visual information. Poster presentations are interactive and give conference attendees an opportunity to gain in-depth understanding directly from presenters. In line with the theme for this year’s conference, we will feature posters that address “for what” and “for whom” we are conducting restoration and how restoration should be carried out. 

Poster Session 1: Friday, January 31, 3:35-4:30 PM

Poster Session 2: Saturday, February, 4:05-4:30 PM

The Knob, Kroon Hall (3rd floor)
