We are excited to announce that APT DC will be holding its annual symposium in September, and this year’s theme is Bridging the Gap between Then and Now: Preservation of Historic Infrastructure. The Symposium will focus on work that has preserved the railways, roads, ports, bridges, canals, and the many other structures and facilities that have kept our region moving for centuries.

We are now accepting presentation proposals for the symposium! Proposals for presentations may be submitted to on any topic, technical research, or case study related to this year's theme. Proposals for in-person presentations ranging from 20-40 minutes will be accepted.

We are also pleased to announce that we will be hosting a poster session, giving students and recent graduates an opportunity to share work related to this year's theme.

The submission deadline for presentation and poster abstracts is June 30, 2023Notification of accepted submissions will be sent by July 17th. 

Stay tuned for additional information related to the symposium and abstract submission requirements to be added on this page in the coming days.
