international alliances and response, preparedness and salvage in
the event of armed conflict (with specific focus on Iraq), salvage

24 hours of an event.

The general technical sessions will focus on topics concerning
bridge building in natural sciences collections management and
conservation, archives, data management and research/technical

Additional highlights include a one-day field trip to the Yale
Peabody museum, tours of the AMNH collections, and a joint session
