13th International Symposium on Friction Stir Welding

Conferences 21-23 May 2024

13th International Symposium on Friction Stir Welding
3rd International Joint Symposium on Joining and Welding

21-23 May 2024

Kyoto, Japan

This is a unique global forum that provides the opportunity for professionals from around the world to share and develop scientific and technical knowledge on Friction Stir Welding.

The event will be hosted in Kyoto, one of Japan's great destinations at its premier conference center. It is famous for having preserved much of the atmosphere of the past. Visitors can enjoy beautiful Zen gardens, mysterious Buddhist temples and colourful Shinto shrines. Kyoto continues to play an important role in Japanese religion and at the same time universities, institutes, and companies carry out advanced research in science and technology.

This event has been kindly sponsored and supported by the Joining and Welding Research Institute, Osaka University and will also combine as the Third International Joint Symposium on Joining and Welding.

The symposium will include three days of technical presentations, with opportunities to network and socialise during an evening banquet of traditional Japanese food and entertainment surrounded by a beautiful Japanese garden.

An industrial visit has been organised by our sponsor on 24 May 2024.

Meeting attendees from countries that require a visa to enter Japan are reminded that the process of obtaining a visa can take up to three months. You are strongly encouraged to plan ahead and begin the application process early. The Symposium Organising Committee will assist in providing an official visa invitation letter for this conference.
