Congress on Welding, AM and NDT heads to Metz

The first International Congress on Welding, Additive Manufacturing and associated Non-Destructive Testing (ICWAM) is to be held in Metz, France, May 17 – 19, 2017.  The congress is co-organised by Institut de Soudure and Ecole Centrale Nantes.

The main objective of the conference is to bring together welding technologists, metallurgists, NDT specialists and Additive Manufacturing researchers and end-users. Topics covered will include flexible fabrication, processing, specimen design, developing constitutive relationships, developing feedback loop, process monitoring and control.

A call for papers has been issued and those interested in presenting should submit an abstract no later than November 15, 2016.
