6th International Summer School on Smart Materials & Structures - A cross-disciplinary perspective

Radical developments in material science, telecommunication and sensor technology are about to transform the way of engineering design is conceived and carried out. In the next ten years smart materials and structures, with embedded sensors and systems capable of self-diagnosis, will be part of our life, from simple goods to civil buildings. These elements will be permanently connected through a distributed network so that owners, users, and everybody involved in the management process – connected via the Internet – can check the condition of the elements during production, transportation, installation and operation.

The scope of the School is to provide an overview of smart technologies from a cross-disciplinary perspective with special focus on fiber optic sensors, smart materials, nano- and micro-technologies, wireless sensor networks, autonomous mobile sensors, control devices, nondestructive evaluation, data analysis and decision making.
