The international event included speakers and attendees from around the world, including Australia, Canada, England, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Panama, Spain and the United States.
More than 160 attendees sat through full days of presentations on a wide variety of topics. Louis Conference Website (which includes a public Discussion Forum) is still online and will remain active for at least another year, the organizers decided to have the conference materials permanently archived here on Shroud.com, so we have created a new St. We have included links to most of the papers and presentations that were made, as well as links to abstracts, photos and video clips (coming soon thanks to Russ Breault) and will continue to add more as they become available.
Below are links to several of the papers presented: This event was held at the Drury Plaza Inn in Chesterfield, Missouri and was co-sponsored by the Resurrection of the Shroud Foundation and the Salt River Production Group.
