32nd European Conference on Acoustic Emission Testing
Czech Republic, Prague, Congress Centre Olympic - Tristar
September 07th - 09th, 2016

EWGAE General Assembly in September 2014 entrusted the Czech Society for NDT (CNDT) with organizing the 32nd EWGAE conference in the year 2016. As the conference venue was chosen capital of the Czech Republic Prague.

The conference, joined with exhibition of technique and services for AE testing, will provide the good opportunity to present the latest research results and the newest technique along with current applications. Attendees from different industrial and research branches will be invited to exchange information, experience and knowledge, explore new ideas and benefit from expertise of other practitioners, engineers, scientists, and students.

It will be also a nice chance to showcase the Czech Republic as a heart of Europe with its magical city Prague.

We believe that the 32nd European Conference on Acoustic Emission will provide a big forum for the meeting of specialists, researchers, students, and all common users of acoustic emission technique from around the world. We hope that also you will participate at this outstanding event.

The conference is organised by Czech Society for NDT in cooperation with European Working Group on Acoustic Emission


Basic Conference Themes

  • AE and material behaviour (steels, plastics, wood, composites…)
  • Analytical methods and localization of defects
  • AE for testing of equipment (pressure vessels, storage tanks, pipes…)

The magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes, whose image has been mirrored on the surface of the Vltava River for more than ten centuries. Prague is also a modern European metropolis full of energy, music, and art. It’s a city of contrasts: Serene green isles in the river and peaceful parks draping the city’s seven hills are just steps away from the architectural treasures and bustling street life of the city centre. It’s a place where different architectural styles stand cheek by jowl, creating an atmosphere that’s both intimate and romantic, and quite impossible to forget once seen.
