Call for abstracts for the AWS 2018 IBSC in New Orleans

AWS 2018 International Brazing & Soldering Conference (IBSC) New Orleans, LA - April 15-18, 2018

Submission Deadline: December 1, 2017 (Complete a separate submittal for each paper to be presented)

The American Welding Society is again organizing the four-day International Brazing & Soldering Conference. Every three years, IBSC brings together scientists and engineers involved in the research, development, and application of brazing and soldering. Parallel sessions allow presentation of the latest advances in brazing and soldering technologies and will be organized to maximize interaction between the two disciplines.

Brazing and soldering professionals are invited to submit abstracts of 150 to 200 words describing original, previously unpublished work for consideration. The work may pertain to current research, actual or potential applications, or new developments. Commercialism must be avoided to maintain the high level of technical quality and integrity of the IBSC conference series.

All abstract submissions must be completed by December 1, 2017.

Below are some of the topical areas covered at IBSC:

• Aerospace, Automotive & Structural
