Welcome 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 (EWSHM 2020). 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.

We are thrilled to announce that we received nearly 700 abstracts from 50 different countries. A large fraction of these abstracts was submitted to one of the 35 Special Sessions promoted by true leaders in their respective fields. As quality is one of our top priorities, all the abstracts were reviewed and slightly over 600 abstracts were accepted.

Amid the latest developments associated with the COVID-19, see the full message at http://www.ewshm2020.com/covid-19/ , we have extended the deadlines for the submission of the conference paper to 15 April 2020 and for the early bird registration to 20 April 2020. We have also temporarily suspended the Cancellation policy: for full details visit http://www.ewshm2020.com/registrations/.

With this message, we want to thank the ongoing support of exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees who continue to register and plan for the Workshop, and we want to remind that Sponsorship and Exhibition opportunities are still available. All opportunities will get your company recognized and make your company stand out as an industry leader! Contact the Workshop Secretariat at Mrs. Giusy Ventura: giusy.ventura@collage-spa.it today to take advantage of what promises to be one of the most attended Workshop in SHM.


While we are working hard to make this Event a professional success for everyone, we are also working to provide a unique travel experience for the delegates and their loved ones during their stay in one of the most suggestive parts of Southern Italy. We could not be happier when we read that the New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/travel/places-to-visit.html ) ranked Sicily #7 among the “52 places to go in 2020”. We suggest you to visit the Travel info section of the website to get important updates on the matter, including interesting post-conference Tours http://www.ewshm2020.com/leisure-time/ .

If you have questions please do not hesitate to contacting us or any of the Organizing Committee members.
