The sessions will feature demonstrations on a variety of SHM applications from many leading or start-up companies and educational institutions in order to:
  • show the audience how SHM works in practical applications,
  • a better understanding of the practical issues of different SHM systems,
  • get further feedback and requirements expressed from current and potential SHM users,
  • share experiences in SHM.
Each presentation is allowed no more than 5 minutes through a video, internet or a hardware live demonstration only, which will be directly displayed to the audience on a large screen. Videos of company presentations will not be accepted. Videos will therefore be required to be made available to the session organizer for approval. It is mandatory that the SHM system is shown in action. Static displays are not acceptable. Each presentation will be followed by a brief Q&A session where the SHM demonstrators must answer questions from the audiences.

The test cases being presented can be either based on self-developed or purchased SHM systems. The source of the SHM hardware is eligible to be mentioned but no further advertisement from or about the supplier of the SHM system will be accepted.

Who can participate:
  • workshop exhibitors,
  • workshop presenters and
  • workshop participants.
