As part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Mathematical Institute SANU, our Action’s member Ivana Atanasovska prepared a short article about our Action.

The article is a part of a virtual exhibition published on the website in the form of an application for mobile phones. The virtual exhibition is available at the link:

The QR codes of the applications are on the same page. Here you will find the info about our Action given on the Institute’s website.

Structural Health Monitoring Damage Detection Systems for Aerospace

  • This book is open access, which means that you have free and unlimited access.
  • Presents the state-of-the-art in SHM technologies for aerospace.
  • Describes typical applications and maturity of each method.
  • Gives full details of each method so readers can quickly familiarize themselves.
  • Reviews in depth the defects to be detected alongside their relevance.

This article/publication is based upon work from COST Action CA18203 (ODIN –, supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology).

Paper Invitation for Special Issue “Damage Detection Systems for Aerospace Applications”

Dear Dr.All,

As the journal Sensors celebrates its 20th year, we invite you to take part in this celebration by submitting manuscripts for a Special Issue devoted to “Damage Detection Systems for Aerospace Applications”.Papers from a wide variety of perspectives that will help to advance the field are invited. For more information or questions about the fit of a potential manuscript, please e-mail us.All submissions are peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published immediately. It can either be a comprehensive review or full research paper.

For further reading, please follow the link to the Special Issue Website.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
• damage detection
• energy harvesting
• optimization
• wireless communication
• data management

The submission deadline is 15 December 2020.

You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to or

In the meantime, we hope that you are not directly affected by the corona virus and hope you and your families are all safe and healthy.

We look forward to hearing from you.

With some regret we will have to postpone the AE training school due to the limited travel opportunities. It will be re-run in the near future. We know it hadn’t be widely advertised yet so hopefully it will not have too much impact.

Aim: To facilitate capacity building on a topic relevant to the theme of the respective COST Action through the delivery of intensive training on a new or emerging subject. Not intended to provide general training.
