Dear Colleague,

We have the pleasure to extend a warm welcome to everyone planning to attend the 5th International Conference on Structural Integrity (ICSI2023).

As always, ICSI will take place in Funchal, Madeira, in the last week of August/first week of September. This time we opted to organize the event in VidaMar Resort Hotel Madeira, a venue with stunning panoramic views of the Atlantic and still a short walk from central Funchal.

After the ARS-COV2 pandemic, we are back to a in-presence organization. Still, for particalar situations we will offer the opportunity for a hybrid mode conference.

ICSI focuses on all aspects and scales of structural integrity thematic. This ranges from basics to future trends, with special emphasis on multi-scale and multi-physics approaches, and applications to new materials and challenging environments.

The conference proceedings will be published with open-access in Elsevier’s Procedia Structural Integrity. Also, selected papers will be published in top journals.

First set of invited speakers and journals affiliated with the event are already available.

The conference will be a forum for discussion of current trends of research in structural integrity, in aeronautics and space, but also in other sectors of engineering where structural integrity is a key concern. Aim and Topics The conference topics include but are not limited to:

Coating Technology

Damage Tolerance

Design and Structural Assessment

Durability

Environmental Effects

Fracture Analysis

Joining Technologies

Nanomechanics and Nanomaterials

Non-destructive testing/inspection

Numerical modelling

Repair Technologies

Structural Ageing

Structural Health Monitoring

Structural Integrity

Surface Engineering

BioMechanics
