Join SPIE Smart Structures + Nondestructive Evaluation 2020 in Anaheim

Conference community. View photos and articles.

SPIE Smart Structures + Nondestructive Evaluation showcases the latest research in advanced materials, electroactive polymers (EAP), bioinspiration and biomimetics for robotics design, along with energy harvesting, sensor networks, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and structural health monitoring (SHM) for automotive, aerospace, civil infrastructure, Smart Cities, and Industry 4.0.

Collocated in 2020: SPIE Smart Structures + Nondestructive Evaluation will be right next door to SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing this year. Technical registration for either symposium gives you access to both meetings. Explore the DCS exhibition to see over 300 companies in the sensors industry.
