The 20th WCNDT 2020 postponed due to
global impact of the COVID-19 outbreak

The conference will be held in the Songdo Convensia, Incheon, Korea
May 31 (Mon.) ~ June 4 (Fri.), 2021
The Organizing Committee of 20th WCNDT 2020 has decided to postpone the Conference to the new dates, May 31 to June 4, 2021 at a new venue, Songdo Convensia, Incheon, Korea. We have made a very difficult but necessary decision, with the close consultation of ICNDT Executive Committee, to ensure the safety and health of all prospective participants amid the serious COVID-19 outbreak all around the world. The new venue has been selected as the most optimal for the 20th WCNDT in terms of accessibility, convenience for exhibition facility and accommodation, and capacity for a world-class event.

We would like to inform you that all conference registrations, abstract submission, contracts for exhibition and sponsorship that have been made to date should be maintained and rolled over to the rescheduled conference. Equally important, we will notify you by the end of May, 2020, of an updated timeline including any possibility of the additional submission of abstracts and the rearranged registration deadlines in accordance with the new conference dates.

While we deeply regret any inconvenience due to the inevitable change of the dates, we will try to make the postponement as another opportunity to make the Conference much more fruitful and successful. At the same time, we hope that you would still be able to join us in spite of this schedule change. In this regard, we would like to cordially ask you for your continued interest and active participation.

We wish you stay healthy and look very much forward to seeing you all in May next year at the 20th WCNDT 2020.

Songdo Convensia is located in Incheon, an international city directly adjacent to Seoul.
Songdo Convensia has all the necessary elements of a world-class convention destination, including easy accessibility from Incheon International Airport, adequate tourism resources, high-quality hotels(5star, Walkable) and restaurants and the existence of an active support network consisting of both public and private organizations.
The newly expanded Songdo Convensia two years ago is composed of a state-of-the-art ubiquitous system, making it an ideal place for exhibitions and conferences. This is definitely a better place.
