πάντως means   "in any case"

Example: Πάντως εγώ θα έρθω. =  I will come in any case.

Sometimes "πάντως" indicates a contradiction when the speaker wants to differentiate himself from something.

Example: Δεν ξέρω τι θα κάνεις εσύ, εγώ πάντως θα έρθω. = I don't know what you will do, but I will come in any case.

"ωστόσο" means "however"


Ήμουν άρωστος. Ωστόσο πήγα στη δουλειά. = I was ill. However I went to work.
