The 58th Annual Conference of the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) will be taking place from 3-5 September 2019 at The International Centre, Telford, 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.

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 3 May 2019.

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.

Materials Testing 2019

The 2019 Materials Testing Exhibition (MT2019) will run alongside the NDT conference, with over 70 companies expected to exhibit and promises to be bigger and better than ever.

MT2019 is free of charge for visitors, who will benefit not only from a concentration of materials testing innovation and excellence, but also from an enhanced programme of talks and seminars in the exhibition hall, covering practical aspects of NDT and related technologies.
