Conference Focus


The JOM series of biennial International Conferences & ‘know how’ Exhibition in Welding Technology go back five decades to the nineteen seventies.

The JOM Conference is unique in that it is dedicated to the advancement of joining and material technologies and fabrication techniques in all the key industry sectors.


As the latest R & D results and recent industrial applications will be presented, participation in the conference technical programme will be essential for those engineers wishing to advance their knowledge as part of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).


More recently, training, qualification and certification of welding personnel have become increasingly important. The implementation of recent knowhow through Education and Training is now a key part of modern welding technology. Thus, this topic is also a key JOM Conference focus.


Publication of the Conference Papers


The JOM 20 Conference Proceedings will be assigned an ISBN number for publication (JOM ISSN: 2246-0160).

The Conference and Exhibition Venue, Registration and Accommodation:


The Conference venue as well as accommodation and the exhibition all take place at the scenic Konventum, LO-Skolen in Helsingør, the same Conference venue for the hitherto JOM Conferences. The Conference Venue has excellent facilities and cuisine at reasonable cost. With easy access from Copenhagen airport (by rail), the venue offers an outstanding location on the Danish coast.
