About the International Conference

The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is pleased to invite you to this premier event, the Thirteenth International Conference on Condition Monitoring and Machinery Failure Prevention Technologies.

The Conference is being organised by BINDT in close co-operation and partnership with the US Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology (MFPT). The combination of the efforts of two leading organisations creates the largest event of its kind at a truly international level and builds on the highly successful series of twelve international Condition Monitoring Conferences organised by BINDT and 70 Annual Conferences organised by the Society of MFPT.

BINDT has always recognised the importance of encouraging students to participate in this major international event. As a repeat to the gesture in 2015, the Thirteenth International Conference will be providing generous sponsorship of student registrations in 2016, resulting in a major reduction of fees for student attendance.


There will be four sessions running in parallel covering a wide range of advances in CM fields, which will include:
  • Plenary keynote addresses
  • Plenary distinguished invited presentations
  • Specialised keynote addresses (for structured session organisers)
  • Invited presentations
  • Contributed presentations, including case-study presentations
  • World-leading sessions for major industrial sectors, including a session for the BINDT certification scheme
  • Expert panel sessions on hot topics in condition monitoring, organised by recognised scientists
  • Extensive exhibition and vendor presentations
  • Social events
The Exhibition of around ten will take place alongside the Conference and will provide an ideal opportunity to investigate the up-to-date technology available.
