After two successful conferences in 2017 and 2018, the Smart Maintenance Conference's third edition has taken place on the 3rd of September 2019.
We hoped to foster again fruitful discussions on predictive maintenance between experts from the industry and from the academic world.
To explore new perspectives in intelligent maintenance systems, we gathered renowned speakers from varied backgrounds, including railway, automotive and aerospace industry, academics and others.
