Why would a welder want to attend this conference? They will be able to participate in technical programming that is comprehensive and focused on fundamentals as well as applied joining and welding. They will learn about the latest research in modeling and experimental perspectives. They will get to meet the who's who of welding, the experts of more than 25 countries who will be there to share what they know. They will be able to take advantage of a huge variety of recreational and social activities. And they will get to stay at the premier resort in Chicago, the Hilton Chicago/Indian Lakes Resort in Chicago, Illinois during the conference which is scheduled for June 4-8, 2012.
