  • Prognostics system design and engineering
  • Prognostics sensors and detection
  • Physics of failure prognostics
  • Asset health management
  • Structural health management
  • Prognostics for electronics
  • Fault detection and prognostics for microsystems/MEMS
  • Diagnosis and fault isolation methods
  • Data-driven and model-based prognostics
  • Condition-based maintenance technologies
  • Standards and methodologies
  • Fault-adaptive control methods
  • Return-on-investment analysis
  • Deployed applications and success stories

Submission Instructions:
The submission opens on November 25, 2013 through the PHM Society website ( Please submit an abstract by the abstract submission deadline, January 24, 2014, using the normal submission process choosing ‘Student Poster’ under ‘Submission Type.’ Submissions will be reviewed.

In addition to presenting the poster at the conference, the authors are invited to also submit a Technical Brief on the same subject as the poster, which will be reviewed, and, if accepted, will be included in the Conference proceedings. Submitting a Technical Brief is not mandatory, and the poster presentation will be accepted whether the authors of a student poster submit a Technical Brief, or not.

The initial submission of the Technical Briefs will be due on April 18, 2014 and reviewer feedback on the Technical Briefs will be provided by May 16, 2014. Final submission for the accepted Technical Briefs will be due on May 30, 2014. Please note that Technical Briefs must be prepared strictly according to the template of the full paper per the instructions available here. For further questions on submission and related issues please contact the Student Poster Co-Chairs Giovanni Jacazio ( and Karl Elkjaer ( We look forward to your contributions.
