The Academic network ECND-PdL (Non Destructive Testing and Evaluation in the Pays de la Loire), which consists of 15 research laboratories, in the Region ( is organizing an International Workshop dedicated to scientific advances in recent research in "Non Destructive Testing and Evaluation : physics, sensors, materials and information”. The symposium will be held on the 21rst and 22nd of November 2011 from 9.00 to 18.00 at the “Ecole Centrale de Nantes” - France. Through conferences covering different scientific areas, this workshop aims to show the relevance of these methods for the characterization of materials and structures and thus foster interaction between physics, mechanical engineering, acoustics, signal processing (…)in the Region Pays de la Loire, but also at European and International levels. Among the invited speakers (See further the detailed program):

Jennifer Michaels, Georgia Tech, USA
Tomas Olofsson, Uppsala University, Sweeden,
Jan van der Kruk, Institute of Bio and Geosciences, Jülich, Germany
Marco Scalerandi, Ecole Polytechnique de Turin, Italy
Vitaly Gusev, IUF, Université du Maine, Le Mans
Christian Pichot du Mézeray, Université Nice-Sophia Antipolis, CNRS
Pierre-Yves Joubert, ENS Cachan

Other colleagues from Region Pays de la Loire France are also contribute to this event : J. Idier CNRS and Ecole Centrale de Nantes, G. Berthiau IREENA Université de Nantes Saint Nazaire, D. Leduc IREENA Nantes, F. Schoefs GEM Université de Nantes, V. Métivier Subatech Ecole des Mines de Nantes, F. Treyssede from IFSTTAR Nantes, R. El Guerjouma LAUM Université du Maine Le Mans,...These days are also an opportunity for doctoral students and post-doctorals to present their work in a poster session. This workshop could also offer opportunities to have some exchanges with the industrials.
