The 2011 Prognostics and System Health Management Conference (PHM-2011) will be held in Shenzhen, China, on May 24-25, 2011. This follows the success of the PHM-2010 Conference held on 12-14 January 2010 at the University of Macau. It was the first of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region to promote PHM as a key enabler for growth for a broad range of industries. The conference attracted more than 140 delegates and experts worldwide in diverse application areas. Many well-known companies and institutions participated in the conference, including IBM, China Aero-Polytechnology Establishment (CAPE), Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), Toshiba Corporation, Tsinghua University, EADS France Innovation Works, Beihang University, Cranfield University, and Yokohama University, among others.
The PHM-2011 conference will continue to promote the adoption and application of PHM in the Asia Pacific Rim Region. PHM-2011 aims to bring together the global community of PHM experts from industry, academia, and government in diverse application areas such as avionics and aerospace, marine systems, power and electronic systems, process industries, computers and telecommunications, material systems, industrial automation, and healthcare and medical technology to share in PHM development. In particular, we are looking for new theory, technology, and applications in PHM.
