Thank you: Summary of the application workshop and upcoming events

Thanks to all participants for your interest in the UTonline workshop.

As in "real" conferences the figures of publicly held discussions are often
not very high, however the 46 messages (11 topics) posted here show an
excellent professional background. Also the number of workshop messages do not reflect actual
workshop traffic.
Even with our comfortable new mailing list, which reduces the traffic to the
webpage, the statistics show 1017 visits to the application workshop page. (Statistic below)
Mr Schlengerman's paper received the highest traffic with 194 visits.
That's a good number compared to conferences which usually have a much smaller
audience. For that reason we think that in times of increasing economic
stress our workshops offer an attractive way to reach people - good news
for readers and panelists.
Of course we can't take the place of "real" events, but we hope to give
people who can't go there anyway a forum for sharing new technology and
information.

A short review of the proceedings with the most topical discussion. The TOFD
topic presented in-depth information in the messages of
Ed Ginzel [message 60] ,
Udo Schlengerman [message 67] and
Hermann Wuestenberg [message 76].
After reading those messages it is clear that this method has its limitations and shouldn't be used for weld
testing without combining conventional UT methods. We had planned in one of
the next issues to focus on TOFD; we will still do that, incorporating
the information presented here.

The next workshop will be held in October - a so-called 'UTonline Fall
Workshop'; we've combined the originally planned thickness and automation
workshop to assemble a broader-based application workshop. Some papers focusing on
thickness and automation have already been submitted. More experts are invited to
send their papers and participate as panelists.

Of course we want to continue improving the workshop. An extended list of
participants is one additional feature we are considering, e.g., homepage
link, and space for a profile of each, for more personal contact among users.
But we'd like to know how you liked this one and what you'd like to see
in the future. Please complete the questionnaire and tell us what you think.

We hope to see you soon at the 'UTonline Fall Workshop' in October,
meanwhile stay with us on UTonline.

Thank you!
