Congress overview

 

The congress includes plenary sessions, oral communications, poster sessions and industrial exhibition covering all thematic goals of the conference in the field of welding, additive manufacturing and associated non-destructive testing on both metallic and composite materials. The program is designed to allow interaction among conference delegates and to promote an active dialogue between academic researchers and industrial specialists in order to bridge the gap between academic developments and pressing industrial needs.

CONFERENCE GOALS

 

How will parts be manufactured in 2030? How will technologies reinvent existing fabrication and monitor processes? How will this affect manufacturing, parts design and lifecycle assessment?
In the field of welding, the recent rise of additive manufacturing (AM) has heralded new developments in materials science and manufacturing in many sectors. As much as the scientific base that governs weld integrity is akin to what determines integrity of AM parts, synergies between welding and additive manufacturing can be found along the whole value chain, from process modeling to non-destructive testing (NDT) of parts for quality control. New materials and hybrid processes are being developed at a fast pace, requiring new skills and the structuring of communities. Furthermore, welding and additive manufacturing have now respectively entered the emerging fields of multimaterials joining and composite additive manufacturing.

ICWAM’s original intent to bring together welding and additive manufacturing actors to foster an international network of experts from academy and industry is thus reiterated.
The ambition of the congress is threefold:

  • Bring together welding technologists, NDT scientists, Additive Manufacturing researchers to interact with metal transformation and composite industry specialists.
  • Encourage international networking over the whole value chain, between welding & joining/rapid prototyping/additive manufacturing/monitoring stakeholders.
  • Offer opportunities to visit local industrial venues and platforms for R&D and smart fabrication processes in both metal and composite fields.


 

Keynotes and Invited presentations

Eminent researchers and industrial experts renowned in the field of welding, additive manufacturing and associated non-destructive testing are to give keynotes and invited presentations during ICWAM’2019.

Poster session

A poster session will take place during ICWAM’2019 in the hall adjacent to thematic sessions.

 

Technical exhibition

The technical exhibition will run in parallel with the scientific conference in the halls of Metz Congress Robert Schuman Center (conference venue). The exhibitors will have the opportunity to present their products, services and technologies to the community.
