4th International Congress on Welding & Joining Technologies - 3rd IIW International Congress in the Western European Region

The next edition of the Congress will take place in Sevilla on 27, 28 and 29 May 2020. On this occasion it is the School of Engineers of Sevilla and more specifically the Group of Elasticity and Resistance of Materials, who make it possible that once again, this important event takes place in other cities of the Spanish geography. The Congress will serve as a meeting point for the exchange of experiences and knowledge among experts in the sector, as well as to update and contrast the opinions of the Speakers and Attendees. It also represents an unbeatable opportunity for the dissemination of the technological capacity of the entities, offering a means for the development and dissemination of new technologies in the field of joining technologies.
The main objective of the sessions is to disseminate the know-how of the latest achievements in the field of joining, coating, additive manufacturing and related processes like structural integrity, inspection, quality and environmental management.

The sessions will offer welding professionals, their employers, scientists, fabricators and welding-products suppliers the best framework to exchange ideas and information, share knowledge resources, an establish a dialogue intended to open new research directions and to join together in partnerships for new projects development. This sessions can be an opportunity to advance in the welding profession, its products and its practices and to continue driving the welding industry forward.
