Dec '98 Forum Introduction and Breaking News on NDTnet
1. This Month's Forum Introduction
As usual, the discussion can cover the entire NDT spectrum, if anybody has time at all during this season.
Our new Internet crawler can be a great help to discuss NDT on the Internet Topics. Also let's explore more general topics like: What do you want to see on Homepages? Or how do you like our new Virtual Library? What other features you would like to see?
2. This Month's Breaking News On NDTnet!
NDTnet Launches New Robot - Content retrieval now faster, better than ever before! Our Virtual NDT Library Database is now powered by a huge number of remote NDT Pages. See our separate Introduction of this new feature.
We use the robot for our Exhibitors' Homepages too. This and other new extras for sponsors make advertising on NDTnet much more valuable than old-fashioned "piece of paper" ads. NDT Products are just a mouse click away! See our News on Advertising here
With this month's issue we complete our special series on the ECNDT '98 with a spectrum ofpapers from all sessions. However, due to some authors' schedules, we may still publish late arriving e-files in 1999. A few papers may not arrive at all. Some German institutions/authors decided to boycott NDTnet in protest of our report on this summer's German train accident. We'll have more to tel you about that development in our DGZfP Bamberg '98 report next month. Control of the Internet? Ethics of NDT?
Thanks to the Slovenian NDT Society, we are pleased to provide the complete Abstracts of the Proceedings of the 1997 International NDT Conference.
