Social Event and Poster Session - Tuesday 24 March 2009

Social Event:  
An Exploration of Ridley Creek State Park & Hunting Hill Mansion
- 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.

Members and guests are invited to join us for an afternoon of discovery in our neighboring Ridley Creek State Park. The park’s historic past is told through its gently rolling hills, historic relics and buildings, tranquil walking trails and 18th century living history farm. 

First, we’ll take a step back into historic rural Pennsylvania with a tour of The Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation. Experience life on an 18th century farm through a guided tour with colonial re-enactors. After the tour, we’ll venture over to stately Hunting Hill Mansion for music, scientific poster session, cocktails and dinner.

This year, we will be entertained by one of Philadelphia’s Mummers clubs, The Fralinger String Band. The Mummers are a long-standing Philadelphia tradition of costumed entertainers who welcome in the New Year by participating in a New Year’s Day parade. Mummers String Bands are known not only for their elaborate costumes, but also their unique sound. Experience the contagious music of The Fralinger String Band, Philadelphia’s 2009 top prize winner, with their lively musical talents, followed by dinner, networking, and scientific posters discussions.

Technical Poster Session and Reception - 3:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Following the social event, ICDD will sponsor a poster session and reception at Hunting Hill Mansion on Tuesday, 24 March 2009.

ICDD is soliciting poster presentations and their electronic abstract for this event. Here's an opportunity to display and communicate your studies and research results. Posters relating to all aspects of X-ray analysis or work relating to ICDD are welcome. Technical inquiries should be addressed to the Poster Session Team, Scott Misture, misture@alfred.edu or Tom Blanton, tblanton@icdd.com; Questions concerning the submission process should be addressed to Eileen Jennings at jennings@icdd.com.

To provide uniformity, it is recommended that abstracts be prepared in Microsoft® Word, according to the following guidelines:

  • Text:
    • text should appear flush left; do not indent
