    The International Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation of Wood Symposium Series was initiated by Washington State University and the USDA Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) in 1963 with the convening of a symposium on the topic of nondestructive testing of wood at FPL. Including that meeting, 17 symposia have been held during the last 50 years at various sites around the world that focus on nondestructive testing and evaluation of wood. The technical content of these symposia have been captured and published in hardcopy proceedings. The proceedings from this series of symposia are rather large; they contain over 6,000 pages of technical information related to the topic of nondestructive testing and evaluation of wood and wood products. Recently, many have expressed a need to have access to these proceedings in an electronic format. This General Technical Report was prepared to address that need.
