#SPPC2020 will be held virtually this year during Earth Science Week; 11th-17th October. The format will be posters only, with a day dedicated to questions and answers via social media and dedicated video chat. ‘Preparation and Conservation’ is used in its broadest sense and includes all physical work undertaken on or with any geological material to prepare it for research, teaching, storage or display. Preference will be given to presentations describing techniques considered to be new or unusual.

Please send abstracts to by Monday 31st August 2020. Abstracts must be no more than 250 words and written in English. We welcome abstracts from professionals, volunteers and/or enthusiasts and particularly from anyone not normally able to attend the meeting for reasons such as distance or cost.
