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.

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.
