community has gathered to consider the science and technology of
nondestructive materials characterization. The 13th International Symposium
on Nondestructive Characterization of Materials™ ISNDCM-XIII will be held at
Palais des Congrès del la Culture, Le Mans, France, May 20 to May 25, 2013.
Symposium co-chairs are Shant Kenderian, Mourad Bentahar and honorary chair
Professor Emeritus, Robert E. Green , Jr.

We cordially invite you to submit an abstract for the 13th International
Symposium on Nondestructive Characterization of Materials.

Abstracts should not exceed 3,000 characters (including spaces) or a one-page
document. The program committee will evaluate all abstracts. Accepted
abstracts will be selected for oral presentations.

Abstracts should include: name, address, e-mail and phone numbers of all the
authors. The corresponding author should be listed as the first author of the
submission. All abstracts should be in English, submitted in Microsoft Word or
PDF format. Other formats will not be considered for presentation or
publication in the conference proceedings. The abstract should be e-mailed as
an attachment to the

Partial List of topics for the symposium:

Advanced Techniques
Laser Ultrasound
Aerospace Application
Medical Imaging
Art & Archeology Preservation
Acoustic Emission
Millimeter Wave
Amorphous Materials
Bond Strength Evaluation
Nuclear Materials
Composite Material Properties
Optical Materials
Eddy Current
Precursor Damage

The symposium also encourages papers addressing other issues of current and
future interest. Of considerable interest are state-of-the-art developments and
applications where the complex nature of materials is recognized. Furthermore,
discussions on the applications and possibilities for multi-technique
measurements of interdependent parameters and the evaluation of the data
through sophisticated computer analysis are also encouraged
