NDT in Progress 2013

The 7th International Workshop NDT in Progress 2013, a biennial event established in 2001, will be organized by Fraunhofer IZFP and CNDT. This year the workshop will be held in Dresden, Germany.

The primary aim of these workshops is the meeting of NDT world experts and discussion of the latest state-of-the-art in NDT research and development in selected areas. Parties interested are invited to contribute to discussions through their oral and/or poster presentations.

Besides skilled experts exchanging their views the workshop also intends to address young researchers and even students inviting them to present their latest findings, making the workshop an exceptional platform in disseminating latest experience made within the NDT/NDE field.

Basic Topics of the 7th NDT in Progress:

This year NDT in Progress will be focused (but not restricted) to NDT of lightweight materials. The basic topics are:

  • Methods based on elastic waves
  • Nonlinear methods and inverse problems
  • Electromagnetic and radiographic methods
  • Optical methods
  • Image and signal processing
  • Numerical simulations in NDT
  • Automated NDT systems and data processing
  • Structural health monitoring

Additional Programs and Accompanying Events

This year the NDT in Progress workshop will directly follow the 6th Dresden Airport Seminar, a prestigious information sharing event for NDE and SHM in Aeronautics. The 6th Dresden Airport Seminar will take place from November 5-6, 2013. Participants can join both events at a reduced registration fee. Cultural and social evenings on November 5 and 7, with special events, guest speakers and discussions are planned. All participants and accompanying persons are cordially invited.

Do not miss this bundle of significant events due to be run along a single week and at very adjacent places. Take the opportunity to visit the Dresden branch of Fraunhofer IZFP, one of the largest institutes for NDT worldwide. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Dresden.
