The Emerging Conservation Professionals Network (ECPN) is excited to host our second Poster Session Lightning Round! This fun and informal event will highlight the contributions of emerging conservation professionals to the Annual Meeting Poster Session. Selected participants will each give a very short presentation—essentially an "elevator pitch”—on their poster topic and have an opportunity to field questions from colleagues. The posters featured during the Lightning Round represent a wide range of specializations, types of collections, and areas of scientific research. Conference attendees at any career stage are welcome and encouraged to attend this event! 

The posters featured during the Lightning Round represent a wide range of specializations, types of collections, and areas of research. Join us to hear authors discuss the conservation treatments of unusual objects including an early edition Barbie, a theatrical makeup kit, and a board game with iron corrosion. Attendees will gain insight into the safety and logistical challenges presented by objects previously treated with heavy metals, as well as the communication challenges encountered as an architectural conservator building rapport with specialists in related professions. Come learn about the effects of climate change on submerged wooden artifacts and material characterization techniques, such as the information provided by SEM-EDS on the composition and manufacture of metal threads. Novel gel-based methods of treating electroplated silver and iron gall ink corrosion will also be presented.

Please see the below list for the full roster of posters to be discussed during the Lightning Round:
To conclude the event, we will also be providing the opportunity, time permitting, for poster authors and event attendees to get to know one another, network, and brainstorm future events and resources they would like to see ECPN pursue.
