Papers that are submitted will be reviewed by an extensive programme panel, chaired by Professor Len Gelman, of Cranfield University (UK), and Professor Tony Hope, of Southampton Solent University. The accepted papers will be published in congress proceedings that will be available at the congress. The congress proceedings will be indexed by Web of Science, Scopus and other appropriate citation databases. The congress requires that at least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register for the congress, otherwise the paper will not be included in the congress proceedings.
The accepted papers will be considered for publication in the BINDT international journals Insight and the International Journal of Condition Monitoring. Papers related to ‘case studies’ will be considered for publication in the BINDT international newsletter Condition Monitor. With English being the congress language, the contributions must be submitted and presented in English. Translation into other languages will not be provided.
