This Month's Introduction

Table of Contents

In this month's issue we provide 30 Papers of NDT.net Exhibitors that were presented at the 8th European Conference on NDT. The 8th ECNDT was held in June 17-21, 2002, in Barcelona Spain. We wish to thank authors for their co-operation.
The CD-ROM for the 8th ECNDT is also available and offers about 400 papers which can be browsed with Adobe Acrobat Reader. This CD-ROM is better than the Seville Conference CD-ROM we had reviewed in Issue Vol.7 No.8, however, still missing some features such as full-text search*. In next month's issue we'll publish the DGZfP 2002 Conference CD-ROM.
For future issues we will continue the review of the 8th ECNDT papers. Authors who would like to include their papers in this review please see our Note.
