Also, there will be a concurrent welding exhibition WELD INDIA 2020  and it will provide an opportunity to see the latest developments in the area of welding equipment, automation and accessories. The exhibition will also provide the opportunity to learn about the varieties and developments in welding materials, NDE, etc.

The technical committee would like you to share your knowledge and experience with the welding fraternity by participating in the IC2020  as an author and delegate.

Mumbai is the home of many world-class research institutes like BARC,  NMRL and IIT-Bombay and leading industries like Larsen & Toubro,  Godrej, Reliance, Mazagon Dock shipbuilders Limited etc. It also is the home to many national and international  Design/Engineering/Inspection firms. Within three hours of driving distance is the industrial hub of Pune-Chakan which has many iconic names like Mercedes, TATA, BAJAJ, Mahindra, General Motors, John  Deere etc. The industrial belt of Surat, Ankleshwar, Vadodara,  Ahmedabad, Dahej and  Sanand in Gujarat where every day a new industrial plant is set up is also not too far.  We expect that the seminar papers will have a balanced representation from all aspects of welding science and technology and its allied topics. The audiences/delegates are also expected from a wide variety of backgrounds making for a stimulating experience for everyone. A large number of awards will be given to the papers adjudged as the best in their category. These awards will be presented in the NWS 2021 inaugural ceremony.
