The International Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring (IWSHM) is a biennial workshop aiming to assess the current state-of-the-art technologies in the field of structural health monitoring (SHM), and to discuss and identify key and emerging breakthroughs and challenges in research and development that are critical and unique in SHM.
The 12th International Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring will be held at the Stanford University, CA, USA, from September 10-12, 2019. The workshop features reviews of SHM growth in the last two decades and the perspectives of future SHM directions in research and applications. Papers in support of autonomous and/or intelligent systems and the Industry Internet of Things (IIOT) will be highlighted besides general applications in aerospace, mechanical and civil infrastructure.
This Special Issue is cooperating with the 12th IWSHM. Authors of outstanding papers related to aerospace SHM presented at the Workshop are invited to submit extended versions of their work to the Special Issue for publication.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
