Call for Papers

Following the successful conference on this subject held jointly by
the London Institute and the Institute of Physics at the Institute
of Physics in October 2000, we are staging a second two-day
conference which will also be held at the Institute of Physics in
London, April 3-4, 2003. This conference will examine progress in
research on inks, substrates and processes used in digital printing
and photographs for archival storage. As well as digitally printed
materials from the world of fine arts, the growth of digital
photography is now introducing new media into collections and
archives. The aims of this conference are to inform those
responsible for the preservation of digitally printed material about
developments in digital photography and printing technologies, the
progress in research on inks and substrates and their significance
for conservation and preservation issues. As with the last
conference, our aim is to develop links between industry and the
preservation world.

Substrates to be covered include textiles, papers, and plastics.
Developments in testing and standards for lightfastness will also be

Technical and research papers, plus poster presentations, on this
