Message from the Workshop’s Chairs

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and the International Scientific Committee, we welcome you to the 10th European Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring (10th  EWSHM). This Workshop represents a forum where experts from around the world discuss the latest advancements and breakthroughs in the field of SHM and more broadly in the fields of nondestructive evaluation, smart materials and intelligent systems. The Workshop fosters the discussion and identification of key and emerging challenges and opportunities in research, development, and field applications.

In response to the very latest developments of the COVID-19 outbreak and the busy calendar of events scheduled for year 2021, it has been decided to postpone the 10th European Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring to the first week of July 2022.

  • The papers for the special collection must be submitted through the Springer portal at https://ocs.springer.com/misc/home/EWSHM2020.
  • The publication in this 2020 Special Collection will NOT be included in the 2022 program, for which a new call for abstracts will be released in mid/late 2021. Additionally, the publication in this 2020 Special Collection does not entitle for discounted registration fees for the 2022 event.
