    Walking the Preservation Tightrope: Technology vs. Tradition

    The Association of Preservation Technology Northeast Chapter (APTNE) invites the submission of abstracts for consideration for presentation at the upcoming 2022 APTNE Annual Meeting & Symposium, to be held on Friday, February 25th, 2021, with an in-person event held at Hudson Hall at the historic Hudson Opera House in Hudson, New York, as well as a virtual program.  The overarching theme of the 2022 APTNE Annual Meeting & Symposium is technology vs. tradition and will feature presentations and a panel discussion from professionals, emerging professionals, and local students.

    Presentations must be tied to one of the following tracks:

    • Modern technology, i.e. non-destructive evaluation, photogrammetry, laser scanning, materials testing, computer modeling, upgraded and modern materials
    • Traditional building techniques, i.e. tradesperson techniques, preservation of knowledge
    • Adaptation of traditional building techniques and materials using modern technology, i.e. what works and what doesn't, revisiting historic methods and materials in new construction
    • Infrastructure upgrades, i.e. sustainability efforts, mechanical upgrades to existing structures, building monitoring systems

    We encourage not only case studies, but also social discussions, technical discussions, and academic research.

    Abstract submission will be through the APTNE website. The due date for Abstract Submission is October 18th. The selection process and notifications will be completed in Mid-November.
