International Conference on Tomography of Materials & Structures
ICTMS 2019
22-26 July 2019 | Cairns, Australia

Welcome to ICTMS 2019

Sponsors & Exhibitors


We would like to welcome you to participate in ICTMS 2019, the fourth biennial conference from IntACT (Int. Assoc. of Computed Tomography). ICTMS 2019 will bring together scientists from universities, research organisations, and industry, to discuss 3D/4D tomographic imaging and analysis methods for (non-clinical) studies of materials and structures and we hope this will be the best ever opportunity for the community to get together to celebrate achievements and collaborate on future initiatives.

From the outset of ICTMS in Ghent in 2013 industry involvement has been encouraged and valued. It is through the-service-of and collaboration-with industry partners involved with members of the intACT community that experiments, analysis become possible by providing the equipment, techniques, and know-how; many of the advances in our scientific endeavours are thanks to you. We would like to enhance industry exposure to the ICTMS delegates in 2019 by instigating an "industry session" on Monday afternoon, where each industry sponsor will have the chance to present their latest technology to interested end-users. We also take this opportunity to thank those that have offered to run free half-day courses on Monday morning.

Why Sponsor

Math2Market develops and commercializes the simulation software GeoDict and serves customers worldwide through projects and customized solutions.

GeoDict is continuously developed and improved to the most advanced levels of scientific research and technology while remaining a reliable and easy-to-operate tool. GeoDict allows engineers and researchers in industrial and academic settings to concentrate on understanding material behavior, without the need to reach expert level as software developers.

For this, GeoDict is used to import and segment scans of existing materials or to model their microstructure by input of material parameters. After the statistical analysis of geometrical properties of the models, their physical properties are determined, and later predicted under varying conditions, through simulation using ultra-fast solvers.

The reliability of GeoDict simulations is repeatedly validated by users and attested by numerous peer-reviewed scientific publications. In industrial settings, GeoDict substantially helps to cut R&D costs and time.
