Call for papers
MIP Conference
Metals in Paper / 2nd International Iron Gall Ink Meeting

The MIP--European Thematic Network Metals in Paper is organizing a
final network Conference in Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) - January 25 -
27,  2006. This conference is also the successor to the 1st Iron
Gall Ink Meeting, which was held at Northumbria University in 2000.

The meeting will take about 2-3 days and the exact dates will be
published soon ate <URL:>.

The following *deadlines* are established:

    Abstracts are due by: 31 October 2005
    Acceptance to be informed by: 15 November 2005
    Full papers are due by: 15 December 2005
    Conference: 25-27 January 2006

The aim of the network is to respond collectively to specific
threats to European paper based cultural heritage. These risks
include the deterioration, conservation and storage of paper and
ligno-cellulosic objects that have been affected by e.g.
metal-tannin corrosion throughout, many of which are stored in
archives, libraries and museums.

The aim of the final MIP conference is to present the
state-of-the-art in the field of the four defined theme-groups:

    1.  Fundamental scientific aspects of paper degradation - this
        will focus primarily on diagnostic and analytical
        techniques, studies of degradation processes (including
        endogenous and exogenous factors), and methodologies for
        paper stability evaluation.

    2.  Chemical aspects of active conservation - this will include
        conventional conservation methods as well as the use of
        inhibitors and deacidification techniques

    3.  Physical aspects of active conservation- this will include
        paper splitting, strengthening, leaf casting and cleaning

    4.  Preventive conservation issues - this will include
        environmental aspects of storage, boxing etc.

We welcome papers, poster and exhibitors for this conference.

If you are intending to submit a paper/poster related to the aim of
our network you are welcome to send your abstract (100 words
maximum).  At present, you can send your abstract to
john.havermans<-a t->tno< . >nl or jean.brown<-a t->unn< . >ac< . >uk.   Soon on-line
registration will be available via <URL:>.

All incoming papers will be peer reviewed.

Looking forward to receive your paper and to meet you in Newcastle.
