Faults/failures cause undesired reactions and consequences as damage to technical parts of plants, to human life or to the environment and a profound impact also on production cost and product quality. The design of early faults/failures detection methods is crucial in order to preserve the machinery or human life safety and then to make the right decisions on emergency actions and repairs. Moreover, in highly automated industrial systems where maintenance or repair cannot be carried-out immediately, it is crucial to design Fault Tolerant systems capable of ensuring nominal performance when taking into account the occurrence of such faults. The conference will bring together academics and engineers active in the field of fault diagnosis and fault tolerant control and their implication in the Monitoring and Maintenance. The aim is manifold:

  1. Puce to present current research results and recent developments of intelligent techniques;

  2. Puce to present practical applications or open problems;

  3. Puce to provide an opportunity for industry to signal its needs and priorities.

The conference will highlight some particular recent results in the development of methods and tools which are of a particular interest for academics and engineers. The conference, through its technical program, will provide a unique opportunity for the academic and industrial community to address new challenges, share solutions and discuss future research directions. Presentation of theoretical researches accompanied with practical experience/consideration are encouraged. A broad range of topics in the general area of system monitoring and FDI/FTC is proposed.
