Welcome to the IBSC 2015 website – the central location for information needed to plan your trip to the 2015 International Brazing & Soldering Conference (IBSC).
Now in its 6th Year, the IBSC remains the premier event for the brazing and soldering community. For years, the IBSC has provided professionals, scientists and engineers involved in the research, development and application of brazing and soldering, a unique networking and idea-exchange forum. This three-day conference provides cutting-edge education and technical programming for the brazing and soldering community, as well as peer-networking and a full exhibit program, showcasing the latest trends, products, processes and techniques available in the industry.
We invite you to join us in sunny Long Beach, California for this year's conference, on April 19-22, 2015. And if the weather isn't enough to draw you, why not race in early and catch the 41st Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach? The 2015 race is scheduled immediately before the Conference – yet one more reason to secure your spot today.
Revised manuscript must be submitted by February, 15, 2015.
