Fourth International Symposium on Analytical Methods in Philately

ZOOM Presentations in October 2020

The Institute for Analytical Philately and the National Postal Museum invite you join us for four online sessions, via ZOOM, to review the latest advances in technical studies of postage stamps. Each of the first three sessions will be held on a Tuesday and feature an international group of speakers considered leaders in the field. The format will allow sufficient time for questions and informal discussion. The fourth session, on Thursday, October 22nd, will be devoted to discussion. Sessions will begin at 10 am EST and are open only to registered delegates. Zoom invitations will be sent by early October.
