Third International Conference on
Preservation and Conservation Issues Related to Digital Printing and
Digital Photography
Institute of Physics, London
Apr 24-26, 2006

Organised by Printing, Papermaking and Packaging Group of the
Institute of Physics and The London College of Communication

A two day conference for conservators of prints, photographs and

Following the successful conferences in October 2000 and April 2003,
the Institute of Physics in collaboration with the University of the
Arts London are staging a third two day conference to examine
progress and research on materials and processes used for producing
digital prints and photographs for archival storage. For the 2006
conference we anticipate expanding the areas of interest from fine
art prints and photographs to include digitally printed textiles.
The aims of this conference are to inform those responsible for the
preservation and conservation of digitally produced material about
the developments in digital photography and digital printing
technologies, the progress in research on inks and substrates and
their significance for the archiving of artefacts. As with the
previous conferences our aim is to promote links between industry
and the conservation world.

Once again, the conference will be jointly organised by the
Printing, Papermaking and Packaging Group of the Institute of
Physics and the University of the Arts London (formerly the London
Institute). It will be held at the Institute of Physics Conference
Centre in Portland Place, London. The event is aimed at an
international audience of conservators, preservation personnel,
conservation scientists, archivists, curators, photographers, the
digital printing industry as well as ink, paper and textile R&D
departments. Post-prints will be produced after the conference, and
will include a transcript of the discussion sessions.

Research areas explored during the conference will include:
developments in digital printing and photography technologies and
future trends, developments in materials for digital printing
including textiles, plastics and papers, developments in colorants
and their stability, progress in establishing standards and
archiving protocols.

Proceedings from the October 2000 and April 2003 conferences are
still available from: The Conference Office, The Institute of
Physics, 76 Portland Place, London, W1B 1NT, UK.
