SINCE 2022 CONFERENCE

The fourth iteration of the Singapore International Non-destructive Testing Conference and Exhibition (SINCE2022) organised by the Non-Destructive Testing Society Singapore (NDTSS) will take place at the iconic Marina Bay Sands Resort and Convention Centre, Singapore from 7-8th November 2022.

The conference includes a technical programme that will present the latest research and technology developments as well as practical applications of NDT in all major industrial areas. The technical programme will feature keynote presentations from internationally-renowned industry leaders. The associated exhibition will emphasise the close links between research and development and the equipment and instruments used in the industry. SINCE2022 aims to provide a unique opportunity to establish contacts and exchange experience, new developments and ideas with local, regional and international delegates from a wide range of expertise.

 

The next generation of industrial production and product lifecycle management encompasses the complete networking of all industry areas (Industry 4.0). NDT has to follow these trends by not only adapting NDT techniques to new technologies such as additive manufacturing, but also by introducing the capabilities of cyber systems into the inspection and maintenance processes. The conference theme “Driving Resilence throgh Non-Destructive Testing” encompasses these developments

SINCE2022 welcomes original contributions from practicing NDT professionals, engineers, scientists and developers in academia, research and industry (manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and end-users) on any aspect of non-destructive testing and evaluation including, but not limited to, the following areas:

AREAS OF PRESENTATION
