Workshop Dates
The organizing committee of the IWSHM 2021 workshop has been closely monitoring the recent COVID-19 conditions as they apply to the travel situation around the world. The organizing committee is still planning for an in-person meeting, but due to recent travel uncertainty, the organizing committee has decided to delay the IWSHM 2021 workshop to ensure the safety of all participants. The new dates for the workshop will be from Tuesday, March 15, 2022, to Thursday, March 17, 2022, to be held at Stanford, CA. IWSHM remains committed to providing a forum for information sharing, collaboration, and advancing research that is vital to our community.

New Full Paper Submission Deadline
Due to many requests from the authors with accepted abstracts, the full paper submission deadline is extended to Monday, November 22, 2021, at 12 AM PST.

Refund Policy
We understand that this change of the date of the workshop may make it impossible for some of the authors to attend the workshop; hence, the IWSHM 2021 organization committee has decided to offer a full refund for the participants who have registered for IWSHM 2021 before Thursday, September 16, 2021, before the new dates have been announced. If your registration date is earlier than September 16, 2021, and you would like to cancel your registration, please contact us at
For those who have registered later than Thursday, September 16, 2021, the registration cancellation window is now closed. Changes are only allowed if you are unable to attend IWSHM 2021 due to an extended wait time or rejection of your US visa application. In that case, please contact us at with supporting documentation and your registration will be transferred to IWSHM 2023.



This is a reminder that the 13th International Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring (IWSHM) will be held on March 15-17, 2022, at Stanford University, CA. We are planning for an in-person meeting. IWSHM remains committed to providing a forum for information sharing, collaboration, and advancing research vital to our community.
The workshop features reviews of SHM growth in the last two decades and examines opportunities for future SHM research and applications. The theme of 2021 IWSHM is "Enabling Next-Generation SHM for Cyber-Physical Systems."  Papers in support of autonomous Inspection and/or intelligent data-driven diagnostic systems and the Industry Internet of Things (IIOT) for preventive maintenance will be highlighted besides general applications in aerospace, mechanical engineering, and civil infrastructure. Learn more...

About Cyber-Physical Systems

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon, the seamless integration of computation and physical components. Advances in CPS will enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability that will expand the horizons of these critical systems. CPS technologies are transforming the way people interact with engineered systems, just as the Internet has transformed the way people interact with information. New, smart CPS drives innovation and competition in various application domains in aerospace, civil infrastructure, and mechanical systems health monitoring, aeronautics, civil infrastructure, energy, environmental quality, healthcare, and personalized medicine, manufacturing, and transportation. CPSs are becoming data-rich enabling new and higher degrees of automation and autonomy. Traditional ideas in CPS research are being challenged by new concepts emerging from artificial intelligence and machine learning. The integration of artificial intelligence with CPS, especially for real-time operation, creates new research opportunities in the area of structural health monitoring with significant societal implications. While tremendous progress has been made in advancing CPS technologies, the demand for innovation across SHM application domains is driving the need to accelerate fundamental research to keep pace.
