Research, development, and applications in experimental vibration analysis of civil engineering structures are being fed by the continuous progress in the fields of sensor and testing technologies, instrumentation, data acquisition systems, computer technology, and computational modeling and simulation of large and complex civil infrastructure systems. The objectives and challenges are to understand the behavior and state of health of structural, geo-structural, and soil-foundation-structural systems as well as predicting their remaining useful life using vibration data collected from these systems when subjected to operational and extreme loads. Advanced data analysis (e.g., system and damage identification, machine learning, and deep learning) methods are required to extract the needed information from the data and to gain from the information the knowledge required to support decision making related to maintenance and inspection, retrofit, upgrade, and rehabilitation of these systems as well as in case of emergency response.
EVACES, the International Conference on Experimental Vibration Analysis for Civil Engineering Structures is a premier venue where recent progress in the field are presented and discussed by experts from all over the world. After the first eight successful editions of EVACES which took place in Bordeaux, France (2005), Porto, Portugal (2007), Wroclaw, Poland (2009), Varenna, Italy (2011), Ouro Preto, Brazil (2013), Dübendorf, Switzerland (2015), and San Diego, United State of America (2017), China (2019), EVACES 2021 will be organized by the University of Tokyo and Saitama University Sep. 17-20, 2021. We hope the COVID-19 pandemic comes to the end soon and would like to welcome you all on the Hongo campus of the University of Tokyo. However, depending on the COVID-19 situation, we may need to welcome you online from Tokyo.
The topics of EVACES 2021 include but not limited to: (1) damage identification and structural health monitoring, (2) testing, sensing and modeling, (3) vibration isolation and control, (4) system and model identification, (5) coupled dynamical systems (including human-structure, vehicle structure, and soil-structure interaction), (6) application of IoT, robot, UAV, big data and artificial intelligence techniques.
