The objective of the STP is to present an overview of current
treatment, conservation, and repair approaches for heritage wood
structures, and to provide a forum for sharing of technical
information about wood preservation. For example, the Church of the
Transfiguration on Kizhi Island in Karelia, Russia, will be the
focal point for one group of papers. Additional groups of papers
will address heritage wood buildings in other regions of Europe,
North America, and Asia. Papers are invited from architects,
engineers, conservators, and others involved in the technical
preservation of these two structures, as well as other wood
structures of historic significance and cultural interest.
