On behalf of the Organizing Committee and the International Society for Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure, we would like to invite you to the 8th Civil Structural Health Monitoring Workshop (CSHM-8). This Workshop represents a forum where experts from around the world discuss the latest advancements and breakthroughs in the field of civil structural health monitoring (SHM) and more broadly in the fields of smart materials and intelligent systems for civil engineering applications. The Workshop also fosters the discussion and identification of key and emerging challenges and opportunities in research, development, and field applications of SHM to civil structures and infrastructures. The CSHM-8 workshop is also intended to promote communication exchange and cross-fertilization among researchers and practitioners from all around the world sharing their expert knowledge in the field. The main theme of the Workshop is “Aging structures and infrastructures in hazardous environment”; topics of special interest for CSHM-8 include – but are not limited to -:

  • Innovative sensing solutions for SHM,
  • Data-driven damage detection techniques,
  • Nonlinear systems and analysis techniques,
  • Influence of environmental and operational conditions,
  • SHM in earthquake prone regions,
  • Real world applications.

While we are working hard to make this Workshop a professional success for all the delegates, we are also committed to provide the best travel experience for the delegates and their loved ones during their stay in one of the most suggestive cities of Southern Italy. Naples is, in fact, the third city in Italy for population, and the main city in Southern Italy. It was the former capital of the Two Sicilies Kingdom and it hosts the most ancient public university in Europe. It is a vibrant city, renowned throughout the world for its art, architecture and culture. Its Mediterranean climate and its excellent food encourage visits in any period of the year. In order to offer the best experience of the city to the Workshop delegates, the venue is located in the heart of the city in a place where one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Neapolitan Gulf can be enjoyed. Several accommodation solutions are available within walking distance.

Meanwhile, if you have questions please do not hesitate to contacting us at cshm8@unimol.it.

Sincerely,

Carlo Rainieri (Chair)

Giovanni Fabbrocino (Co-Chair)
