Call for Papers and Announcement International Conference on Smart Materials and Nanotechnology in Engineering

1st July - 4th July, 2007, Harbin, China
Organized by Harbin Institute of Technology, China

Theme: Non-Destructive Testing Applications
Theme Chair: Brian Stephen Wong and Rolf Diederichs

Smart Materials and smart structures are being utilized much more in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) applications particularly in the aerospace industry. For example defects such as cracks are being detected by systems using multiple sensors on aircraft structures and many phased array ultrasonic systems are being developed and used for critical aircraft inspections. There is also increasing interest in structural health monitoring by using embedded sensors in aerospace or civil structures.

Papers are sought which focus on defect detection in structures using piezoelectric, electromagnetic or other types of smart sensors. Although emphasis will be on aircraft structures other applications are also welcome.

The conference proceedings will be published by SPIE, and Non-Destructive Testing Papers will be also published in NDT.net.
