With the 13th International Seminar „Numerical Analysis of Weldability", a tradition of successful meetings will be continued. Since the first of these events in 1991, this seminar series has developed to be a world leading conference in the growing field of the development of methods for predicting the microstructure and properties of welds. It is both, of practical importance and academic interest and it supports the philosophy of computer modelling, which helps to optimise welding processes and consumables as well as the service behaviour of welded components. Leading experts in this field attend the seminar and present their latest results in the calm atmosphere of an ancient castle.
The seminar is organized by the Institute of Materials Science, Joining and Forming of Graz University of Technology.
The following items (among others) of development and application of numerical analysis shall be discussed:
• Arc Welding, Melt Pool and Solidification
• Microstructural Modelling in Weld Metal and Heat Affected Zone
• Microstructure and Mechanical Properties
• Residual Stresses & Distortion
• Cracking Phenomena & Hydrogen Effects
• Solid State & Friction Stir Welding
• Special Joining Processes
• Modelling Tools & Computer Programs
• Additive Manufacturing
• Artificial Intelligence
After a peer review process, the contributions will be published as a book. Furthermore, all papers can be published as open access articles.

IIW Kenneth Easterling Best Paper Award
This IIW award, which is sponsored by the Institute of Materials Science, Joining and Forming of Graz University of Technology, will be awarded for the seventh time.
It is given to the paper "which is valued by an international committee as the best contribution made over the three years proceeding on the advancement of knowledge or practice in respect of mathematical modelling of weld phenomena".
