3rd International CANDU ISI and NDT in Canada 2010 Conference

The NDT in Canada 2010 Conference, held in conjunction with the 3rd International CANDU ISI conference was a resounding success! Over 200 people from Canada and around the world converged on the Hilton Suites Toronto/Markham Convention Centre and Spa from June 14 – 17 to learn about the latest and greatest technology, research and other developments concerning nondestructive testing, inspection and evaluation.

During the Monday evening mix ‘n mingle reception, kitchen staff at the Hilton provided attendees with mouth watering canapés and hors d’oeuvres while they were introduced to the 21 companies in the Exhibitors area.

After opening remarks from conference co-chair Dr. John Baron, the first plenary speaker, Paul Spekkens, VP of Science & Technology Development at OPG kicked off the presentations.  Fifty-four presenters were organized into two well-attended tracks over the next three days.  The five sessions included New Technology, New Applications, Qualification, Engineering and Operation Experience.

On Wednesday night, COG and CINDE were pleased to host the conference dinner which also served as an evening of professional recognition.  CINDE Chair Dennis Domenichini was pleased to award the Technical Achievement and W.E. Havercroft awards to Gilles Rousseau and Dr. Jean F. Bussiere respectively.  Conference co-chair Dr. John Baron also took the opportunity to recognize our sponsors and exhibitors who were important contributing factors to the success of the conference.

Two more tracks Thursday morning wrapped up the conference with some really exciting presentations followed by lunch where following the steps of last year, the organizing committee had a grand prize draw.  Not only did he receive one of the warm up prizes, but presenter Willie Huang, student at the Royal Military College of Canada went home with a new Gateway Laptop and accessories.

We were very lucky to have many international delegates travelling from locations such as Germany, China, South Korea and even Mauritius in the audience and at the podium and we wish to sincerely thank everyone for coming to Markham and making our conference a success.
