Submissions for the 2017 APT and National Trust Ottawa Conference paper presentations and APT Student Scholar applications are now being accepted online. Conference professional submissions are due Friday, March 17 and Student Scholar submissions are due Friday, March 31.
The Association for Preservation Technology International and the National Trust for Canada have joined forces to create CAPITALizing on HERITAGE, expected to be the largest gathering of conservation practitioners and advocates ever mounted in Canada. Industry professionals and strong community voices will come together to share the best in technology, policy, means and methods for preserving and renewing heritage buildings, sculptures, districts and engineering works.
Share your insight and cutting-edge ideas! Our audience of industry professionals and craftspeople are committed to maintain, conserve and protect historic structures and sites for future use and appreciation, and they will be participating in the Conference to hear from their peers.
All papers presented at the conference will be considered for publication in post-conference issues of the APT Bulletin. APT and the National Trust reserves the right to publish all accepted abstracts on their websites and with conference registration materials.
Save on Registration
In addition to all of the intellectual and social benefits of attending the world's premier preservation technologies gathering, you'll enjoy a reduced registration rate as a speaker (or a full scholarship for Student Scholars).
The conference theme, CAPITALizing on HERITAGE will provide an extraordinary opportunity with seven conference tracks organized into three technical tracks, three cultural/community tracks and one track exploring the intersection of policy and technical issues. The papers within each thematic track will range from macro to micro in scale, with subject matter as diverse as cultural landscapes, non-destructive testing, heritage advocacy, engineering, sustainability, and project financing.
Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts that fit within the 7 broad thematic tracks. Potential topics are listed but the abstracts do not have to necessarily fit these example topics, just the track. Case studies must include what the author(s) has learned from this case study and why it is relevant to the conference.
