This two-day conference, organized by the Printing, Papermaking and
Packaging Group of the Institute of Physics, is a successor to the
international conference on the same subject held at the Institute
of Physics, London,in October 2000. The conference, which forms part
of The Physics Congress 2003, will examine progress in research on
inks, substrates and processes used for producing digital prints and
photographs for archival storage and display. As well as digitally
printed materials from the world of fine arts, the growth of digital
photography is now introducing new media into the archival system.
The aims of the 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 also to develop links between industry and the
preservation world. There will be 18 papers given covering the
following areas.

Monday 24th March
    The concerns of artists and printmakers
    Materials, processes and permanence issues

Tuesday 25th March
    Standards of permanence
    Digital photography and textiles
