Call for papers--Conference on Digital Printing and Photography

From: Mark Sandy <m.sandy<-at->
Date: Tuesday, November 3, 2009
4th International Conference on:
Preservation and Conservation Issues in Digital Printing and Digital
The Institute of Physics
76 Portland Place
London W1B 1NT
27-28 May 2010


Organised jointly by the Printing and Graphics Science Group of the
Institute of Physics and the University of the Arts London
(Materials and the Arts Research Centre - MATAR), in association
with the Society for Imaging Science and Technology.

A two-day international conference for conservators, digital
photographers and printers

Following the three successful conferences held in October 2000,
April 2003 and April 2006 we are holding a further two day
conference to examine progress in research on inks, substrates and
processes for producing digital prints which may be subjected to
archival storage. As well as digitally printed materials from the
world of fine art, the growth of digital photography is now
introducing new photographic media into the archival system. The
aims of this conference are to inform those responsible for the
preservation of digitally printed materials about developments in
digital photography and printing technologies, progress in research
on inks and substrates and their significance for conservation and
preservation issues and techniques. Our aim is also to develop links
between related industries and the conservation/preservation world.

The event is aimed at an international audience of photographers,
conservators, preservation personnel, conservation scientists, and
those working in the digital printing, ink and paper industries.

Research areas explored in this conference will include: current
developments and future trends in digital printing and photographic
technologies; developments in substrates and inks including
textiles, plastics, papers for both fine art printings and digital
photography; standards for fastness, permanence and the role of
scanning and file formats.

This is a call for technical, research papers and case studies. As
with previous conferences, the proceedings will be published. Please
submit an abstract of up to 500 words by 30th November 2009 to:
