Announcement of the next Conference 2020 in Wels


Previous Conference 2019 in Padova

Since the conference continues to grow, it has been held annually since 2016. After the experts turned Belgium into the iCT capital in 2017, the experts will make a guest appearance in Padova, Italy in 2019 ( The conference is organized by University of Padova in collaboration with the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria.


(Wels, 7 February 2018) Experts from all over the world are visiting Wels for the eight time

The University of Applied Sciences of Upper Austria in Wels has been operating X-ray CT for industrial applications for 14 years now. "At that time there was no international conference, so I just invited all the specialists myself, without further ado," says Prof. Johann Kastner. Initially, it was a small German-speaking meeting, but soon it grew to become an international conference. Now, it is a major event in the calendars of experts and industry leaders.

This year’s iCT2018 had 289 participants from 33 countries and 5 continents. 117 participants were from Germany, 36 from Austria, 15 from Great Britain, 13 each from Italy and the Czech Republic, 12 from France, 9 from Belgium, 8 from Japan, 7 from South Korea, Sweden and the USA each, 6 from Switzerland, 4 from the Netherlands and 3 from Denmark, Iran, Poland and Spain each. The rest of the participants were from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Israel, Palestine und other European countries. The basic idea of the ICT conference is to provide an interface between science and industry, which is confirmed by the distribution of participants: 46 % of the participants came from universities and research institutes and 54 % from industry.

Johann Kastner, initiator of the conference, is pleased about another visitor record: "Although we invite each year now, we again have 10% more participants. This time, we even had to transmit to a second room with a live feed and turn away several exhibitors!" Besides the professional world, this technology also sparks the interest of the industry. In the meantime, computer tomography is being widely used there. In addition to the major car companies such as BMW, Daimler, Audi, Peugeot and Toyota, Airbus and Boeing also rely on CTs for production support.
