Building Assemblies/Systems -- 4 papers examine cutting edge technology as it relates to architectural lighting standards, weathering and performance evaluation, and consolidant penetration of stone by minimal drilling and non-destructive methods.

Materials -- Alternative approaches to historic building mortar restoration, wood strength compatibility, and fractured stone rejoining are presented in 6 papers.
