Lectures for museums

  • Twice at different trade shows in Istanbul.

Lectures for conferences

Dr Hellmuth has been keynote speaker as well as a regular speaker at conferences and workshops.

Lectures for printer manufacturers and/or distributors

  • Nicholas gave the presentation lecture for the new Mimaki UV flatbed printer two days in a row when this new technology was introduced in Europe (December 2006).
  • FLAAR was the featured speaker in Seoul, Korea for the launch of the IP&I Cube 1606S and 1606F UV-curable combo style flatbed printers.
  • Dr Hellmuth is also occasionally asked to lecture by manufacturers for their distributors and dealers, to introduce their new printers, new software, or new features. These are generally private, and often under NDA (confidentiality agreement), since these meetings often discuss next year’s technology that has not yet been formally announced.


We have organized workshops in Cincinnati and one in Seoul, Korea. We did a three-day workshop in Athens, Greece. Also, the FLAAR workshop in Novosibirsk, Russia. Novosibirsk translates as "New Siberia".

You can download any workshop PDF.

During five years at Brevard Community College we had a Maya archaeology symposium every year. This attracted people from all over the US, from Japan, and Europe.
