An invitaiton to Smart Structures + NDE

The Organizing Committee of SPIE's 27th Annual International Symposium on Smart Structures + Nondestructive Evaluation invites you to attend this year's meeting. This unique symposium offers many opportunities to network with colleagues from a variety of disciplines in academia, industry, and government from all over the world.

Organized in nine parallel conferences, SS/NDE brings together emerging technologies and advanced research in instrumentation, sensing, and measurement science with advanced materials, diagnostics, and smart systems. Engineers and researchers from government, military, academia and the commercial sector will discuss the current status and future directions of smart structures and materials, NDE, and health monitoring. Case studies, emerging research agendas, and innovative new technologies will be presented.

The Symposium covers all aspects of the evolving fields of materials, enabling technologies, sensor/actuator design, and applications of these technologies to cover the whole spectrum of life in the 21st century, including commercial, medical, aerospace, Smart Cities, and Industry 4.0. It also includes several conferences on NDE and structural health monitoring: safety, security, characterization of materials, detection of materials defects and degradation, evaluation of the state of damage to enable reliable component failure prediction, application of micro- and nanomaterial systems, energy systems, and infrastructure.

The 2020 event also offers a unique opportunity by sharing a location with the SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing symposium happening next door at the Anaheim Convention Center. Your meeting registration provides you with access to the technical sessions from both meetings (plenaries, demonstrations, networking, etc), as well as the DCS industry exhibition.

Smart Structures/NDE continues to be a showcase for multidisciplinary research and provides an excellent opportunity to explore new research areas by teaming with new partners from many fields. We look forward to seeing you in Anaheim!
