A brief account of the purpose of the meeting:

The intent was to go behind research results in photographic
conservation and discuss methods used for research, why they are
used and how the results change thinking about preservation. We also
discussed what research needs to be done. The participants left the
meeting with a renewed respect for the possibilities and limitations
of a variety of investigation techniques. All contributions to the
meeting are published in English in the proceedings.
