The organizing committee of the IWSHM 2021 workshop has closely monitored the recent COVID-19 conditions as they apply to the travel situation around the world. Due to the recent worldwide upsurge of the Omicron variant, the organizing committee regretfully decided to cancel IWSHM 2021 due to safety concerns and travel uncertainty. The IWSHM 2021 will fully refund the participants who already registered for the in-person attendance in IWSHM 2021.

The organizing committees of IWSHM 2021 have decided to publish the papers that have been accepted by IWSHM 2021 in a proceeding.  The authors would have a choice to either publish their papers in IWSHM 2021 proceedings or transfer the paper to EWSHM 2022.  The authors who would like to publish their papers in the IWSHM 2021 or EWSHM 2022 proceedings, please click here and fill in the form not later than January 31st, 2022.   A publication cost for the proceedings will be announced soon. The authors will have the following options:

a) Publish in IWSHM 2021 proceeding

b) Transfer to EWSHM 2022

c) Withdraw the paper

The IWSHM Organizing Committee wants to inform those authors that do not want to publish their accepted paper in the IWSHM proceedings that they will have the opportunity to present and publish the paper at the upcoming EWSHM, which is still planned to be held on 4-7 July 2022. The EWSHM organizing committee has agreed to accept (without review) the accepted IWSHM papers. However, the Authors are asked to re-format their papers according to the EWSHM proceedings (to be published by Springer) guidelines and submit their manuscript through the OCS Springer system ( by January 14th 2022 ( The EWSHM templates can be found at

The Authors can also choose to publish their paper in the IWSHM proceedings and present it at the EWSHM. In this case, the Authors still need to submit an Abstract (which will be automatically accepted without review) by January 14th, 2022. In either option, the Authors are asked to keep the same Title and Authorships such that the manuscript can be easily identified.

Regardless of the option, the authors will have to register for the European event according to the fees and the deadlines of the EWSHM and will be subjected to the EWHM submission policies:

Presentation Policy: one oral presentation per one Author.

Paper Policy: In order for the papers to be included in the Conference Proceedings, one of the authors must register no later than 15 April 2022.

Student Award Eligibility: Students at the undergraduate and graduate levels at the time of submission are eligible to compete. Students must be the first author on the papers and must present their work at the workshop to compete. The one paper, one registration policy will still apply.

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.
