Rely on AWS to bring you the highest quality conferences in the welding industry.
Quality educational materials – and welding conferences in particular – are just one way your membership serves you. By presenting the latest technology, cutting-edge topics, and industry experts, AWS puts the key to industry expertise and advancement in its members’ hands.
Aluminum Virtual Conference
This conference is designed to provide a basic understanding of aluminum welding. Attendees will learn about leading information on aluminum weld applications, aluminum metallurgy, its welding properties and more.
Qualification of Welding Procedures
A Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) is a guiding document in any welding quality management program. This workshop will explore that role and guide the participants through the process of writing and qualifying a WPS that is ASME Section IX compliant, metallurgically sound, and meaningful to the welder.
Modern Pipe Welding Conference
Your American Welding Society is excited to present a two-day seminar on all aspects of Pipe Welding. This seminar has been designed to help you, your welding team mates, and your customers take advantage of technology’s developments across a broad spectrum of industries and applications.
RWMA Virtual Fall Meeting
Join your peers for this virtual conference to gain knowledge and share best practices. The RWMA Fall Meeting is a key opportunity to tap into the minds of technical experts and like-minded industry professionals and to take-away relevant ideas, news and solutions you can apply to your business immediately.
RWMA Annual Meeting
Save the Date for the American Welding Society’s RWMA Annual Meeting in February 2020.
WEMCO Annual Meeting
Join us for WEMCO Annual Meeting, it is an intensive three-day forum for the executives and thought leaders, on key issues impacting welding equipment manufacturers. Non-WEMCO members are welcome to attend the annual meeting one time prior to registering for WEMCO membership.
Weld Cracking Conference
The 11th Weld Cracking Symposium is a continuation of the long running and very popular AWS conference series. In 2020, this symposium will directly precede the AWS Inspection Conference and focus on the subjects of weldment cracking & inspection techniques/technology. This event will provide the fabrication and construction industry, as well as owner/operators, with leading information on cracking mechanisms, materials of construction, inspection methods and mitigation techniques.
Examining Ways to Improve the Inspections Industry
Be among the first to attend the inaugural Inspection Conference, where experts from the American Welding Society (AWS), American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT), and NACE International (The Corrosion Society), join forces on a comprehensive array of topics common to corrosion engineering, nondestructive testing, steel construction and welding inspectors.
Learn tips, technology and resources to improve the quality of your plans, drawings and documentation, visual inspections, procedures and testing processes.
This Summit is intended to bring the best quality information and construction welding professionals together for a series of interactive presentations on how more value can be brought to welding operations and the best way to execute success welding plans into projects.
Shipbuilding & Aluminum Conference
Aluminum is one of the most versatile and widely used metals in manufacturing. However, its unique chemical and physical properties can also make it one of the most challenging to weld. The critical importance of welding in the shipbuilding industry will also be addressed by providing current information on emerging technologies being developed for shipbuilding applications.
Aerospace Joining Conference
Bringing together experts from Research & Development, Manufacturing and Applications in the areas of advanced welding and brazing, adaptive manufacturing, single crystal repair and advanced repair technologies for the aerospace and IGT engine industries.
RWMA Regional Conference
Save the Date for the American Welding Society’s RWMA Regional Conference in September 2019.
Advanced Coating Symposium – Aerospace
Save the Date for the American Welding Society’s Advanced Coating Symposium in October 2019. The International Thermal Spray Association, a Standing Committee of the American Welding Society, is a professional industrial association dedicated to expanding the use of thermal spray technologies for the benefit of industry and society.
5th International Electron Beam Conference
The Electron Beam Conference will be held in conjunction with the FABTECH Show in Chicago, IL from November 12-13, 2019. The conference will bring together scientists and engineers from industry, academia, and research laboratories from around the world to discuss current and future trends in electron beam welding.
