The 4th International Conference on Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure, SHMII-4 2009, will provide a forum for international scientists, engineers, enterprisers and young researchers to discuss recent advances in smart sensors, wireless sensor networks, signal acquisition and processing, real-time data transferring and management, and explore the potential for international cooperation. Participants will be able to share innovative ideas on the state-of-the-art, state-of-the-practice and future trends of smart sensors, advanced sensor networks and integrated systems for structural health monitoring of intelligent infrastructure.

SHMII-4 is the official conference of the International Society for Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure (ISHMII) and is being organized by Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research. SHMII-4 will build on the success of SHMII-1, held in Tokyo 2003, SHMII-2 in Shenzhen 2005, and SHMII-3 in Vancouver 2007.
