Who should attend?
The Joint Meeting is aimed at professional and aspiring conservators, and other professionals involved with the care, conservation and management of photographs. We expect between 175–250 delegates from throughout the world including the Pacific Rim nations, making it one of the largest gatherings of photograph conservation experts.
Professionals in these roles are increasingly faced with diverse challenges of new media; requirements to prepare larger volumes of material for online access; justifying the special environments necessary for stabilising media with inherent vice and the heightened demands for exhibitions.
This Joint Meeting will be a platform for the most up to date knowledge, research and experience about new materials, remedial treatments and measures for extending the life-expectancy of photographic materials. Discussions will range from the single object-level to the building scale, with an increasing focus on economy and sustainable practices.
