The 6th International Architectural Paint Research Conference will be hosted by Columbia University in New York City from March 15 to 17, 2017.  The theme of the conference, Powers of Ten, is reference to a short film from 1977 by Charles and Ray Eames.  Like the film, Architectural Paint Research (APR) deals with magnitudes of scale, from a single pigment particle, to a painted house, to the decorative tastes of an entire region. In the spirit of the film, the 2017 APR conference aims to take a closer look at how we carry out our research at every level, from the micro to the macroscopic.

The 6th International Architectural Paint Research Conference draws on the successes of five previous APR conferences: Stockholm (2014), Lincoln, England (2010), New York (2008), Copenhagen (2005) and London (2000).
