Call for Papers for CM 2018 and MFPT 2018 Conference

23 January 2018

The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) has issued the Call for Papers for the Fifteenth International Conference on Condition Monitoring and Machinery Failure Prevention Technologies (CM 2018/MFPT 2018), being organised in co-operation and partnership with the US Society for MFPT.

The conference will take place from Monday 10th to Wednesday 12th September 2018 at the East Midlands Conference Centre and Orchard Hotel, Nottingham, UK. For the first time, the conference will be co-located with the Annual British Conference of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT 2018), which will allow delegates to customise their experience by visiting both events under one roof.

CM 2018/MFPT 2018 will provide attendees with an opportunity to network with academics and industrialists from all over the world. Leading figures in the field of condition monitoring will be presenting at the conference, with the very latest developments in the fields of CM and MFPT being revealed, ensuring all attendees will learn something.

Papers are invited on all aspects of CM and MFPT including:

  • Applications
  • Architecture of CM systems
  • Asset management
  • Certification, education and training in CM
