Metals 2004 is shaping up to be a an exciting and interesting
Conference. Topics will stretch from the conservation of Silver
images through the analysis and conservation of archaeological
materials to the conservation of objects containing modern metallic
materials. We are working to ensure that the papers are available as
preprints and will also be available for the NMA web site. Ensuring
that we can meet the preprint deadlines will only be possible if
authors submit papers to us by the 30 June 2004 deadline. Please let
me know if you are going to have difficulties.
(d.hallam [at] nma__gov__au). If authors miss the 30 June 2004 deadline and
do not inform the organisers we may not be able to publish their

as translations in French and Spanish. A program of lab and
associated visits is being developed for the evenings. Subgroup
sessions are programmed for Thursday October 7, 2004. Updates of the
