Note: The Call for Papers process for the 2016 PHM Conference is now closed. However, we are still accepting proposals for the Autonomous Technologies and their Societal Impact Workshop co-located with the PHM Conference and free for PHM Conference attendees. Follow this link for more details.

The IEEE PHM 2016 sponsored by the IEEE Reliability Society is seeking original papers for presentation at the 7th Annual Conference on Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) held at Carleton University, Ottawa, ON, Canada on June 20-22, 2016. PHM is a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary field, that requires an energized exchange of ideas.  This conference will match-up world-class expertise in the academic, engineering, and management disciplines to facilitate synergistic exchanges of ideas and practices.  At the same time, special attention has been paid to assure a sociable, professional environment to encourage networking, forging new relationships, and deepening existing ones.
The conference will cover a broad range of research and application topics covering the full scope of PHM development. World-renowned speakers will provide presentations, and participate in panel discussions, with a full day of tutorials free to all registrants.

Extended abstracts are sought on topics the topics listed below. However, abstracts on other topics related to PHM are also welcome.
