5th IFAC A-MEST workshop.

This will be a hybrid event under the theme “Smart and Connected Maintenance“.

From Smart Retrofitting, so crucial for introducing low-cost connected maintenance when investment budgets are limited, to Global Services in Maintenance and Asset Care Management, this is already planned as a hybrid event to take place Bogota, Colombia. AMEST2022 is ably organised by Giacomo Barbieri, Universidad de los Andes, Colombia, and David Romero, Tecnológico de Monterrey, with support from IFIP WG5.7, ESRA, and the PHM.

Following our practice from previous AMEST workshops (3rd IFAC AMEST – Journal of Risk and Reliability, 4th IFAC AMEST – Neural Computing and Applications, Computers in Industry, ICE Smart Infrastructure and Construction journal), selected journals have again agreed to consider extended contributions published in the proceedings for inclusion in special issues, sections or regular issues. These will be finalised once the submitted / approved papers are in, depending on thematic relevance. So please go ahead to prepare your submissions: Invited Session Proposals are due by 21/11/2021. Papers are due by 19/12/2021.

Details on the workshop, thematic priorities, and submissions are available at:
