Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am honoured to invite you to participate in the 4th IIW South – East European Welding Congress.

We are pleased to continue our long-lasting cooperation at the regional level. Besides of the three associations that take part in the organization of such a Congress for the fourth time, namely the Serbian Welding Society, Bulgarian Welding Society and the Romanian Welding Society, we are also supported by other countries and institutions from the region.

We expect participation of the most important experts, not only from the region but from the European and international scene as well. Within the Congress and the Workshops, specialists from the industry, academic and research fields will have the opportunity to exchange information on current regional and global topics.

During the Congress, as a great opportunity for sponsors, an International Fair of Welding and allied processes will be organized.

All this indicates that the 4 th IIW South – East European Welding Congress will be the largest event in the field of welding to be held on the South – East Region of Europe in 2018 which goes beyond the importance of the region itself.

We would be very grateful if you would forward this invitation to anyone among your appreciate colleagues interested in the subject.

Dr Vencislav Grabulov, dipl.eng.IWE

Congress Chairman
