The International Course on Paper Conservation in Latin America: Meeting East, with headquarters at the Coordinacion Nacional de Conservación del Patrimonio Cultural (CNCPC) of the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH), and organized along with Tokyo National Research Institute for Cultural Properties (TNRICP) and ICCROM, has aimed to be an input in the specialization of paper conservators in Ibero-America from the learning of traditional Japanese techniques and their application in Western heritage. From the beginning of this course in 2012, 70 students from 27 countries have participated, there have been seven face-to-face seminar editions and one webinar. This issue of CR. Conservacion y Restauracion journal is an opportunity to share all the stages of the course: previous, during, and after work, which have required mixed efforts that may seem invisible, yet they have left a testimony of their trajectory and a path of so many little details on their preparation and organization that have made them possible.
