The Showgirl, the Comic Strip and the Physicists

Monday 24 April 2006

Cross-dressing singers and The Beano are not the sorts of topics you'd expect to hear discussed at a physics conference. But that's exactly what will happen at the Institute of Physics in London on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 April when the latest methods of conserving and digitising photographs and artworks will be described.

The two-day meeting on “Preservation and Conservation Issues Related to Digital Printing and Digital Photography” will bring together physicists, conservators and chemists from museums, universities and photographic companies. Participants will hear about the latest research into the longevity of digital prints and storage methods, which we are all increasingly using to document the important events in our lives, as well as the rise of digital reproductions of fine art, and what should be considered “an original”.
