About the conference

Monday 14 to Friday 18 June 2021 

Due to the escalating situation with regard to the coronavirus outbreak in the UK, BINDT has taken the decision to host the Seventeenth International Conference on Condition Monitoring and Asset Management (CM2021) as a virtual five-day event in place of a physical conference.

The CM2021 conference will now take place from Monday 14 to Friday 18 June 2021.

Registration is now open.

 About the International Conference

The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is pleased to invite you to this premier virtual event, the Seventeenth International Conference on Condition Monitoring and Asset Management.

The virtual conference is being organised by BINDT in close partnership with the International Society for Condition Monitoring (ISCM) and the US Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology (MFPT). This combination of the efforts of these leading organisations creates one of the largest events of its kind at a truly international level and builds on the highly successful 16 international condition monitoring conferences organised by BINDT, the First World Congress on CM in 2017 organised by BINDT and ISCM and 71 annual conferences organised by the MFPT Society.

BINDT has always recognised the importance of encouraging students to participate in this major international event. As a gesture to celebrate the seventeenth international conference, the Institute will be providing sponsorship of student registrations in 2021, resulting in a major reduction of fees for student attendance.
