Symposium on Laser Ultrasonics

July 4 - 8, 2016 in Linz

July 4 - 8, 2016 in Linz
5th international Symposium on Laser Ultrasonics and Advanced Sensing

You are cordially invited to the 5th International Symposium on Laser-Ultrasonics and Advanced Sensing (LU2016) to be held at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, from July 4th to 8th, 2016.

The symposium is dedicated to the latest scientific results, methodological and technological advancements, and the most relevant applications of Laser-Ultrasonics. According to the tradition of LU symposia, researchers from academia and industry are invited to participate and exchange their knowledge on Laser-Ultrasonics and Advanced sensing.

A special “Industry Day” will be introduced in LU2016 for the first time. For this “Industry Day“ potential customers around the globe and from different branches like automotive-, aerospace-, semiconductor industry, raw material producer, and many more will be invited. Here, they will get an idea of what Laser-Ultrasonics is about and how they can enhance their products with this technology.

The symposium is organized by RECENDT-Research Center for Non Destructive Testing GmbH and will take place at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria.

We look forward to meeting you at the 5th Symposium on Laser-Ultrasonics and Advanced Sensing LU2016 in Linz.
