Announcement of the second postponement of
20th WCNDT 2020
We truly appreciate your patience and support over the last a few chaotic months as the conference was postponed and many details kept changing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Organizing Committee of 20th WCNDT 2020 had made a difficult decision earlier in April, 2020 to postpone the conference to May 31-June 4, 2021 in the hope that the pandemic situation may improve. However, since we can no longer assure the safety of in-person conference attendees for the previously postponed dates, the Organizing Committee of 20th WCNDT 2020 has decided to reschedule the Conference as follows. We are not considering a virtual format as an option for 20th WCNDT and the health and safety of everyone participating in the Conference shall be the top priority.
The new conference dates:
February 28 ~ March 4, 2022
The venue remains the same:
Songdo Convensia, Incheon, Korea
We deeply regret any inconvenience caused by the change of dates for the second time. However, the Organizing Committee of 20th WCNDT 2020 strongly believes that a postponement to the year 2022 would ensure a most fruitful and successful conference program while allowing as many delegates as possible to attend from around the world.

Most importantly, all paid registrations, already accepted abstracts, contracts for exhibition and sponsorship will remain valid for the new dates. The “Important Dates” have been updated in accordance with the new conference dates so that the additional submission of abstracts becomes possible. In the meanwhile, if you would like to find out a few important facts about 20th WCNDT 2020 quickly, you may also check with the Frequently Asked Questions attached below.

We are so much grateful to our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and all other participants for their generous understanding and patience about this unprecedented situation. Hopefully, this postponement shall be the last one but the challenges with safety and the availability of travel worldwide will be all subjected to the developing situation regarding the COVID-19.

We would like to cordially ask for your continued interest and participation in 20th WCNDT 2020 and look forward to seeing you all in February 2022.
