WELCOME TO WCCM 2019

Following the successful inaugural World Congress on Condition Monitoring (WCCM) 2017 in London, the International Society for Condition Monitoring (ISCM) and the Non-Destructive Testing Society Singapore (NDTSS) are proud to invite you to the 2nd World Congress at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore from 2nd to 5th December 2019. The congress will be held in conjunction with the Singapore International NDT Conference and Exhibition (SINCE2019). This will create one of the largest combined events within the region, which will see communities and societies from both condition monitoring and NDT converge at a single venue to exchange ideas and network at an international level. As Singapore is an industrial hub, the event will also include participation from many major sectors including aerospace, civil, oil and gas, marine, railway, and manufacturing industries.

The theme of the event will focus on digitalisation with the advent of the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) and the Internet-Of-Things (IOT), which are expected to give significant improvements in productivity and asset value. The digital transformation also triggers opportunities and technologies in new and growing fields including data analytics, artificial intelligence, automation and robotics. Advancements in digital technologies for the industry like augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) will also see valuable changes and developments in education and training delivery for qualification and certification.

The congress cordially invites papers from academics, practitioners, and innovators who have views, engagements and breakthroughs to share in the area of digitalisation for condition monitoring. Submissions from all other relevant areas of condition monitoring including but not limited to the following are also welcomed:
