Call for Papers

    The primary objective of the WCAE 2017 is to exchange research and application information on acoustic emission (AE), with particular emphasis on scientific and technical development and cooperation worldwide. The conference is aimed at providing a platform to scientists and practitioners in both academia and industry. The contributions are sought in all areas related to acoustic emission, but not limited to:

  • ● AE signal detection and processing
  • ● AE behavior of materials
  • ● AE in pressure equipment
  • ● AE in structures
  • ● AE in civil engineering and geology
  • ● AE in transportation engineering
  • ● AE in condition monitoring and diagnosis for mechanics
  • ● AE in medical science
  • ● AE standardization
  • ● AE instrument and new developments
  • ● AE applications in other fields
    The official working language of this event is English.


  • Abstract submission:   July 10, 2017  August 10, 2017
  • Notification of acceptance:  July 31, 2017 August 31, 2017
