The Statewide Conference on Heritage will be held July 15th-19th, 2012 at the Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square in Downtown Lancaster, PA. The small town charm, walkable downtown and rural landscapes of Lancaster County set the stage for the Statewide Conference on Heritage which features workshops, sessions and speakers from the historic preservation, archaeological, heritage tourism, transportation, legislative, and planning communities.
Take a YouTube virtual tour of the Lancaster Central Market, Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square and other downtown attractions.
In addition to the new location and date, the Statewide Conference on Heritage features a new partnership with the Transportation Research Board (TRB) ADC50 Committee on Historic and Archaeological Preservation. The Statewide Conference Heritage will partner with TRB ADC50 to host a joint gathering with shared sessions and tours.
This July’s combination conference in Lancaster will feature contributed posters of cutting edge research in archaeology, preservation, transportation, land use, and related fields. There will separate sessions for student contributed papers and professional research. We are now accepting abstracts for presentation at the conference poster sessions. Abstracts must be no more than 500 words, and must indicate whether the proposed paper is a student or professional project. These must be received on or before April 2, 2012. The abstracts will be reviewed by the program chairs, and the principal authors of the accepted papers will be notified by April 20, 2012.
If your proposal is accepted, you’ll be given space and a table to display your poster. Please let us know if you require electric service and/or a connection to the web.
