9th International Conference on Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure


Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) represents a vibrant field of over 20 years of research with limited applications in practice. In recent years, practical applications have been rapidly growing due to technological advances in sensing, visualization and data analytics, coupled with project delivery mechanisms such as accelerated bridge construction and public-private partnerships. Transferring research into practice will thus be a critical milestone in driving the SHM community for further advancement of the field. In this process, researchers, industry, owners, and regulators all have an important role to play.

The SHMII-9 Conference will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, knowledge sharing, and technology-need matchmaking in the global SHM community. It will serve as a unique venue to showcase the technologies and achievements in transportation infrastructure, demonstrate the practical value of SHM research, and raise the public awareness on the need for further SHM research and applications.

The   three-day   conference   program   will   include   keynote lectures, invited lectures, podium and poster sessions, student poster competitions, exhibitions, and technical tours. The program focus will be to build a bridge between research/industry and infrastructure owners. Every effort will be made to engage owners actively throughout the conference. English will be the official language of the conference for both oral and written presentations.

SHMII-9 represents the 9th official event in the biennial conference series of the International Society of Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure (ISHMII).  We look forward to welcoming each of you to St. Louis, Missouri (USA), for this surely-to-be an exciting event in the SHM community.
