Dear colleagues,

The conference organizing committee with their chairmen Prof. Ioannis Prassianakis and
Meletios Tzaferis cordially invites you to present papers and posters in all relevant fields of
NDT and Welds and also to participate in the exhibition of new NDT and Welds products,
which will take place during the conference.

The aim of the conference is to bring together scientists, researchers and industrial engineers in
the attempt to exchange recent experiences in the research and development activities in the
field of NDT and Welding, as well as to promote international collaboration in all matters
related to NDT and Welding.

You are kindly invited to participate in this important event and take the chance to create or
renew friendships, exchange ideas and have the opportunity for relax in this historical and
famous city of Athens, website: ABOUT ATHENS.

Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece and is one of the world’s oldest cities. Classical
Athens was a powerful city-state, a centre for arts, learning and philosophy, home
of Plato’s Academy and Aristotle’s Lyceum and, – it is widely referred to as
the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. The heritage of the classical
era is still evident in the city, represented by ancient monuments and works of art, the most
famous of all being the Parthenon, considered a key landmark of early Western civilization.
Athens was the host city of the first modern-day Olympic Games in 1896, and 108 years later it
welcomed home the 2004 Summer Olympics. Athens is also home to several large museums,
such as the National Archeological Museum, featuring the world’s largest collection of ancient
Greek antiquities, the Byzantine and Christian Museum and the new Acropolis Museum.
Looking forword to welcome you in October 2018

The Chairmen of the Conference
Prassianakis I.,Prof. Emeritus – NTUA, President of HSNT and Meletios Tzaferis, (Chief)
Executive Director of WGI, Mechanical Engineering.
