The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) has issued the Call for Papers for the Eighteenth International Conference on Condition Monitoring and Asset Management (CM 2022). The conference will take place from Tuesday 7 to Thursday 9 June 2022 at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Centre, London Heathrow, UK. The theme for CM 2022 will be: ‘The future of condition monitoring’.
CM 2022 will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to network with academics and industrialists from all over the world. Leading figures in the fields of condition monitoring (CM) and asset management will be presenting at the conference, with the very latest developments in these fields being revealed, ensuring all attendees will learn something.
The conference is being organised by BINDT in close partnership with the International Society for Condition Monitoring (ISCM) and the US Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology (MFPT). This combination of the efforts of these leading organisations creates one of the largest events of its kind at a truly international level and builds on the highly successful 17 international CM conferences organised by BINDT, the First World Congress on CM in 2017 organised by BINDT and ISCM and 71 annual conferences organised by the MFPT Society.
Papers are invited on all aspects of CM including:
• Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and pattern recognition
• Asset management
• Big data and data analytics for CM
• Certification, education and training in CM
• CM and diagnosis methods and technologies
• CM for biomedical and healthcare applications
• CM systems and case studies
• Data mining and fusion
• Design and lifecycle integrity
• Digitisation of CM
• Engineering standards in CM
• Equipment troubleshooting
• Instrumentation for CM
• Integrated vehicle health management (IVHM)
• Internet of Things (IoT)
• Machinery failure analysis and prevention
• Maintenance including planning, scheduling, repair and overhaul
• Materials and structural health monitoring (SHM)
• Modelling and signal processing for CM
• Non-destructive testing (NDT)
• Physics of failure, fault/failure modes
• Risk assessment
• Root cause analysis
• Sensors and actuators
Other relevant topics are welcome.
The deadline for the submission of abstracts (of no more than 200 words) is 18 February 2022, with the deadline for submitting full-length papers being 8 April 2022. To submit abstracts and papers visit: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cm2022-mfpt2022
All abstracts and papers will be subject to peer review by members of the International Scientific Advisory Committee. All approved papers will appear in the conference proceedings. Selected papers may be published in BINDT’s international journal Insight or other international journals. Papers related to ‘case studies’ may be published in BINDT’s international newsletter, Condition Monitor.
Key dates, guidelines for authors and how to submit a paper are available on the conference website at https://www.cm-mfpt.org

Notes for editors
The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is a UK-based professional engineering institution working to promote the advancement of the science and practice of non-destructive testing (NDT), condition monitoring (CM), diagnostic engineering and all other materials and quality testing disciplines. Internationally recognised, it is concerned with the education, training and certification of its members and all those engaged in NDT and CM and through its publications and annual conferences and events it disseminates news of the latest advances in the science and practice of the subjects. For further information about the Institute and its activities, visit http://www.bindt.org
What are NDT and CM?
Non-destructive testing is the branch of engineering concerned with all methods of detecting and evaluating flaws in materials. Flaws can affect the serviceability of a material or structure, so NDT is important in guaranteeing safe operation as well as in quality control and assessing plant life. The flaws may be cracks or inclusions in welds and castings or variations in structural properties, which can lead to a loss of strength or failure in service. The essential feature of NDT is that the test process itself produces no deleterious effects on the material or structure under test. The subject of NDT has no clearly defined boundaries; it ranges from simple techniques such as the visual examination of surfaces, through the well-established methods of radiography, ultrasonic testing and magnetic particle crack detection, to new and very specialised methods such as the measurement of Barkhausen noise and positron annihilation spectroscopy.
Condition monitoring (CM) aims to ensure plant efficiency, productivity and reliability by monitoring and analysing the wear of operating machinery and components to provide an early warning of impending failure, thereby reducing costly plant shutdown. Condition monitoring originally used mainly vibration and tribology analysis techniques but now encompasses new fields such as thermal imaging, acoustic emission and other non-destructive techniques. The diagnostic and prognostic elements, in addition to increasingly sophisticated signal processing, is using trends from repeated measurements in time intervals of days and weeks.
