About the conference

This is the 5th Conference on Cracking Phenomena in Welding and Additive Manufacturing that follows four successful events in 2004, 2007, 2010, and 2014.

The purpose of the conference is to gather international experts to discuss cracking phenomena associated with welding and additive manufacturing, from both a scientific and practical standpoint.

Topics include solidification and liquation cracking, ductility-dip cracking, reheat and stress-relief cracking, hydrogen-induced cracking, weldability testing, simulation and modeling, measurement and quantification, and remedial measures.

Peer-reviewed proceedings of the workshop will be published. Proceedings from previous conferences have been highly cited and are valuable resources for engineers and scientists.

For whom?

Academics and industrial researchers to present and highlight their most recent findings in the field. Of course, we also welcome attendants who do not intend to present, but who have a genuine interest in the cracking phenomena!

Submission of abstracts

Take the opportunity to share your research! Abstracts of 200-300 words should be submitted through this email address: at latest 29th November, 2024.
