Final Technical Program Schedule

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic – Impact to the 2020 PHM Society Conference

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. We have continued to monitor official travel advisories and municipal restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Recognizing the high value networking aspects of our face-to-face conferences, we planned to push forward an innovative hybrid physical-virtual event, but the pandemic situation has made it impossible to have any physical presence in Nashville as planned for September. Therefore, we have made the decision to transition to an all-virtual conference, to be held in late October / early November, which will feature many of the hallmark activities of our annual conferences – Paper Sessions, Panel Sessions, Keynote Speakers, Doctoral Symposium, Data Challenge, etc., with extended on-demand access to recorded material.

High-quality peer-reviewed papers continue to be a centerpiece of the PHM Society Conferences, and 2020 papers will soon be downloadable at no charge as in prior years. The virtual conference will involve a revised registration fee structure. Specific dates and agenda will be posted here shortly.

This conference is organized under the banner of the PHM Society and delivers the quality engagement you are accustomed to. We will bring together the global community of PHM experts from industry, academia, and government in diverse application areas, such as, but not limited to, energy, aerospace, transportation, automotive, human health & performance, smart manufacturing, and industry AI. In addition to technical paper sessions, the conference will also feature workshops, technical demonstrations, expert panel sessions on a plurality of critical issues and applications, a doctoral symposium, Keynote and Luminary speakers, and tutorials free to all registrants. A PHM data analysis competition will be carried out in parallel and the results will be presented during the conference. Leading companies and research institutions will exhibit their products and demonstrate their technologies during the event. Several social events will round up the program by providing opportunities for participants to connect and network with colleagues, including a high-quality career fair and diversity outreach & networking event. The PHM Society will also offer separate, dedicated short courses focused on fundamental PHM concepts and techniques, as well as data analytics before the start of the main conference.

A major differentiator for the PHM Society is its unique approach toward intellectual property rights: Authors retain copyright in their work while allowing the PHM Society to distribute their work through a Creative Commons License. As a result, all articles published by the PHM Society are available to the global PHM community via the internet for free, without any restrictions, and in short order after the conference.
