BINDT 2018 Call for Papers
The 57th Annual Conference of the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) will be taking place from 10-12 September 2018 at the East Midlands Conference Centre and Orchard Hotel, Nottingham, UK.

This prestigious event will see experts in non-destructive testing (NDT) and related technologies meet to exchange experiences, ideas and the very latest developments that will shape the future of NDT.

For the first time, the conference will be co-located with the Fifteenth International Conference on Condition Monitoring and Machine Failure Prevention Technologies (CM 2018/MFPT 2018), which will allow delegates to customise their experience by visiting both events under one roof.

Papers are invited from academia and industry on all aspects of (NDT), including:

Rail and axle testing
Bonded joint inspection
Power generation
NDT of food
NDT in forensic science
Automated and robotic NDT
Theoretical modelling
Inspection qualification
Adhesives and bonding
Phased arrays
Digital radiography
Digital signal processing and imaging
Novel techniques
Time-of-flight diffraction
Technology transfer in NDT
Medical and related NDT
The needs of NDT end-users

Abstracts (of no more than 200 words) must be submitted online at: by 11 May 2018.

Conference Proceedings will be published in the form of extended abstracts (max 12 pages of A4 text) and one copy will be provided for each delegate. Full written papers that are submitted may be refereed with a view to publication in Insight.
