The organizing committee of the IWSHM 2021 workshop closely monitors the recent COVID-19 condition and the travel situation around the World. The committee assessed the travel condition recently. The travel conditions are still uncertain at this moment. The organizing committee is planning for an in-person meeting. Therefore, the organizing committee announced an alternative date for the IWSHM 2021 workshop to ensure the safety of all the participants. The new dates for the workshop will be from March 15 (Tuesday) to March 17 (Thursday), 2022, to be held at Stanford, CA. IWSHM remains committed to providing a forum for information sharing, collaboration, and advancing research vital to our community.

We acknowledge all the participants who already sent their abstracts, and we would like to inform you that these abstracts remain valid. The deadline for submission of the full paper is November 15, 2021.



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.
