Current developments show that in the near future the wide availability of low cost, short range radio technology, along with advances in wireless networking, will enable wireless adhoc sensor networks to become commonly deployed. In these networks, each node may be equipped with a variety of sensors, such as acoustic, seismic, infrared, motion, biomedical and chemical sensors with higher level of information inference associated with identification, embedded signal processing and networking of the data. This conference intends to be the meeting point of researchers and practitioners to share experiences and ideas on innovative developments in any aspect of sensor networks, including Hardware of Sensor Networks, Wireless Communication Protocols, Sensor Networks Software and Architectures, Wireless Information Networks, Data Manipulation, Signal Processing, Localization and Object Tracking through Sensor Networks, Obstacles, Applications and Uses.


4–6 February 2018 1st International Conference on Health Monitoring of Civil & Maritime Structures - HeaMES 2018

London, UK

There is a need for the development of activities related to structural health monitoring , not only in civil but also in maritime structures. Maximising the availability and productivity of a marine vessel, whilst operating safely and with minimal impact on the environment, is a major concern of operators. Ships such as FPSOs have certain constraints, loading characteristics and damage consequences that make them different to other offshore installations and conventional ships, and often more challenging to maintain and operate. Market research show that there is a need for SHM which could handle structural & fatigue analysis and risk based inspection to address the structural in-tegrity monitoring of offshore structures. Currently, operators are using multiple software’s to carry out integrity and inspection planning. Radical developments telecommunication and sensor technology are about to transform the way that asset management is conceived and carried out. Sensors and structural health monitoring system are becoming a normal part of buildings. Sensors can be permanently con-nected to a distributed management network so that owners, users, and in general, all those involved in the management process - con-nected via the Internet - can check conditions during construction and operation. Whereas today the structural engineer conceives the sin-gle building or bridge as a stand-alone project, in future it is likely that structures will be regarded as cells of a complex infrastructure net-work. Design specifications, real-time operation, and any decision on maintenance, upgrading and reconstruction of the single cell will re-flect the management policy of the whole system, properly accounting for concepts such as cost, risk and sustainability.

HeaMAS 2018 provides an ideal platform for industry leading researchers, technology developers, industrial players and supply chain part-ners to converge. Bringing the pioneers together the conference aims to promote the methodologies, exchange of ideas and the way for-ward to commercialisation.

Conference Themes

The various themes are:

  • Sensors and Actuators for Infrastructure Instrumentation
  • Sensor Networks
  • Remote monitoring system
  • Global system Integration
  • Multifunctional Materials and Smart Materials
  • Signal Processing Technologies
  • Real time Monitoring
  • Digital Twin Simulations for SHM Design
