Final Postponement of the 20th WCNDT
The Organizing Committee of the 20th World Conference on Non-Destructive Testing (20th WCNDT) has made the difficult decision to postpone the conference as follows. We are not considering a virtual format as an option for the 20th WCNDT and the health and safety of everyone participating in the conference shall be the top priority.
The new conference dates:
27 ~ 31 May, 2024
Songdo Convensia, Incheon, Korea
(The venue remains the same.)
We deeply regret any inconvenience caused by the change of dates. However, The decision to postpone the 20th WCNDT has not been taken lightly. We all know the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic is still fluid due to the problems such as the resurgence of the virus variants, there is considerable uncertainty regarding travels of foreign participants in May-June 2022.

The Organizing Committee of the 20th WCNDT strongly believes that under the current circumstances where travel restrictions remains in force, a postponement to May 2024 would ensure a most successful face-to -face conference program while facilitating as many delegates as possible to attend from around the world.

Most importantly, all paid registrations, already accepted abstracts, contracts for exhibition and sponsorship will remain valid for the new dates. The "Important Dates" will be updated in accordance with the new conference dates so that the additional submission of abstracts becomes possible. Also, frequently asked questions (FAQs) to check a few important facts about the 20th WCNDT will be additionally updated during January 2022. The official website of the 20th WCNDT(www.20thwcndt.com) will be resumed with a new important schedule, a revised conference program, and other essential information as early as in May 2022.

We truly appreciate your patience, understanding and support over the years as the conference has been postponed and many details kept changing due to the COVID-19 outbreak. At the same time, we hope that you would still be able to join us in spite of this schedule change. In this regard, we would like to cordially ask you for your continued interest and active participation.

We wish you stay healthy and look very much forward to seeing you all in May 2024.
