This prestigious event will consist of three parallel technical sessions covering a broad range of NDT technologies and applications. This will see experts in NDT 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: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ndt2020 by 8 May 2020.

All abstracts and papers will be subject to peer review by members of the International Scientific Advisory Committee. All approved papers will appear in the conference proceedings. Papers will be published only upon receiving the full registration fee and a signed copyright form (provided by BINDT upon acceptance of submission) before 14 August 2020.

Selected papers may be published in BINDT's international journal Insight, the International Journal of Condition Monitoring or other leading international journals. Papers related to 'case studies' may be published in BINDT's newsletters, Condition Monitor and NDT News.
