        in the presence and absence of fossil material

    *   CCI research on poly(vinyl acetate) and acrylic adhesives

    *   CCI research on epoxy resin adhesives, and

    *   an overview of poly(vinyl butryal)s

Practical hands-on sessions:

    *   comparing various adhesives (ie., cyanoacrylates, PVACs,
        acrylics, epoxy resins and PVBs) on fossil (and other)

    *   measuring the pH measurement of fossil material

    *   calculating the force on a bond

    *   examining various adhesive additives
