IPC-SHM 2021

The 2nd International Project Competition for Structural Health Monitoring


The 1st International Project Competition for Structural Health Monitoring (IPC-SHM2020) was organized in 2020 to tackle the challenge by fostering and encouraging innovations in the structural health monitoring (SHM) community. In IPC-SHM2020, 75 teams worked on three projects related to bridges in the field. The projects served as benchmarks to develop and evaluate different structural health monitoring methodologies, leading to the proposals of innovative solutions.

This year, a new competition is launched to further extend the frontiers of computer vision-based civil infrastructure inspection and monitoring. The competition is organized by the Asia-Pacific Network of Centers for Research in Smart Structures Technology (ANCRiSST), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Harbin Institute of Technology, Zhejiang University/University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Institute (ZJU-UIUC Institute), and the University of Houston. All interested students and young scholars are invited to participate in the competition.
