In 1996 Sebastian Dobrusskin <sebastian.dobrusskin [at] span__ch>
organized a symposium in Berne, Switzerland, devoted to questions of
conservation of digital and conventional photographic pictures. Rita
Hofmann (Ilford, Fribourg) and Dieter Becker and Klaus Kasper (Felix
Schoeller, Boulder, CO) held lectures on on Digital Prints (in
English). The lectures have been published by "Rundbrief Fotografie"
No. 12 (Hofmann in German, Becker/Kasper in English) (generally look
at: <URL:>, and order at:
<w.jaworek [at] fototext__s__shuttle__de>. During his studies at GEH in
Rochester, Martin Juergens <mcj1933 [at] aol__com> did some research work
on ink jet, too.
