on behalf of the local organizing committee, I am pleased and honored to announce that the Politecnico di Torino will host the 7th International Conference on Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure in Torino – Turin – Italy, on July 1-3, 2015.
First of all, I would like to thank the International Society for Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure for this great opportunity. We expect to continue the successful work started in the previous SHMII conferences in an effort to advance the discovery of breakthroughs in this field of science and technology.
The panel of experts who will convene in Torino will ensure a comprehensive coverage of the conference topics.
The scientific programme will include state-of-the-art lectures, round tables, oral communications and poster sessions.
Key-note speakers and invited speakers will present their view on advances and future trends in structural health monitoring of intelligent infrastructure.
Hundreds of international scientists, engineers and researchers from all over the world will have the opportunity to share their experience with their peers in a stimulating scientific and cultural environment.
The 7th SHMII conference will also be a great opportunity to discover Torino.
Located in the northern part of Italy, our city has strong links to Europe and to the rest of the world and its international vocation was reinforced by the organization of the 2006 Winter Olympic Games.
First capital of Italy, Torino is in many ways a laboratory-city. Its University dates back to 1404, and its Politecnico to 1859. The laboratory of Torino has generated numerous leading industries in Italy: automotive, aeronautics, fashion and design, cinema, publishing, telephones, radio, television and space. In each of these sectors Torino maintains a position of excellence.
Torino is one of the major Italian congress destinations thanks to its strategic position. It is easy to reach by plane, car and train and its entire transport system offers excellent services. Besides the 2006 Olympic Winter Games, Torino hosted many important national and international congresses, exhibitions and sport events and many others will be held in the city in the upcoming years.
Torino boasts treasures of major historical and architectural interest such as the Royal Residences of Piedmont which are inscribed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. This city will surprise you with the baroque elegance of its historical centre, the secret fascination of its beautiful squares, the arcaded streets and the magnificent buildings from its past as capital city. A wide choice of cultural activities (more than 40 museums) and a world-wide famous tradition for food and wines as well as many excursion opportunities will make your stay in Torino unforgettable.
