International Symposium on Structural Health Monitoring and Nondestructive Testing

The aim of the International Symposium on Structural Health Monitoring and Nondestructive Testing (SHM-NDT 2018) is to provide an overview of the latest breakthroughs in SHM and NDT and their interactions with various industrial sectors.

Internationally acknowledged experts and researchers in the field of SHM, NDT and data processing will be speaking. The symposium will be a 2-day conference (4th and 5th of October 2018) with oral presentations, poster session and an industrial exhibition.

Industry 4.0 forms an opportunity for a paradigm shift- from traditional Structural Health Monitoring and conventional Nondestructive testing to digital monitoring for process control and optimization. This requires new and intelligent, self-learning sensors. In this context, sensors are viewed primarily as complex systems, such as ultrasound or X-ray computed tomographs, thermography and eddy current sensors or electromagnetic sensors. These systems require an intelligent design and implementation, but the multidimensional and complex data streams generated by those sensors must also be intelligently analyzed using advanced image processing and modern machine learning techniques.

The aim of the International Symposium on Structural Health Monitoring and Nondestructive Testing is to provide an overview of the latest breakthroughs in SHM and NDT and their interactions with various industrial fields. Internationally acknowledged experts and researchers in the field of SHM, NDT and data processing will communicate about the latest research and development activities.

The symposium provides a forum for end-users, scientists, equipment suppliers and for an interested audience to discuss current scientific topics and to examine products as well as present and future possibilities for SHM and NDT.

The symposium will be a 2-day conference with oral presentations, poster session and industrial exhibition.

Keynote Speakers
Gao Xiaorong, Director of Photoelectric Engineering Institute and Nondestructive Testing Research Center, Chengdu, China
Randolf Hanke, Director of Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP, Saarbruecken, Germany

Submission of Papers
Participants are invited to submit an abstract in English until 31 March 2018. Please use the template provided on the symposium´s website. Accepted ab-stracts are invited to submit full paper by 01 September 2018. Full papers will be published in NDT.net, the Web‘s Largest Open Access Database of Nondest-ructive Testing (NDT) ISSN 1435-4934.

For inclusion in the final program and in the conference proceedings, at least one of the authors of accepted papers needs to register until 10 July 2018.

Best Student Award
This award recognizes an exceptional contribution. The best paper authored primarily by a Graduate or PhD student and presented by the student at the symposium will be awarded. The winner will be announced during the gala din-ner. A monetary prize and a certificate will be handed over to the winner.

Technical Program Committee
A distinguished Technical Program Committee (TPC) has been formed to evaluate and provide feedback on abstracts and final papers received, compile the program and chair sessions.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
