The symposium venue is very well located in The Hague (The

Bell Air Hotel. Registration and conference fee shall be announced
in our second call.

Aim of the symposium: To provide the end-users, policy makers and
other interested parties from the field of conservation of cultural
heritage insights and conclusions on the application of laser
technology as a novel innovative conservation tool for paper

The EU project PaReLa (Paper Restoration using Laser Technology) has
as main objective the development of a laser cleaning system
suitable for accurate and safe restoration of paper objects. This
cooperative research project was co-funded by the European
Commission, Community Research under the Fifth Framework programme,
Energy - Environment and Sustainable Development, "City of Tomorrow
and Cultural Heritage" (CRAFT contract number EVK4CT-2000-30002).
The work was carried out from September 2001 until November 2003 by
a consortium consisting of four scientific research institutes and
ten Small Medium Enterprises (SME's) like conservation workshops.
