14th Annual Conference of the
Prognostics and Health Management Society
November 1 – 4, 2022
  • PHM Short Courses
  • Doctoral Symposium
  • Technical Program: November 1 – 4, 2022
The PHM Society is pleased to announce the return of our annual in-person conference for 2022 in Nashville, TN

This conference is organized under the banner of the PHM Society and delivers the quality engagement you are accustomed to. We will bring together the global community of PHM experts from industry, academia, and government in diverse application areas, such as, but not limited to, energy, aerospace, transportation, automotive, human health & performance, smart manufacturing, and industry AI. In addition to technical paper sessions, the conference will also feature workshops, technical demonstrations, expert panel sessions on a plurality of critical issues and applications, a doctoral symposium, Keynote and Luminary speakers, and tutorials free to all registrants. A PHM data analysis competition will be carried out in parallel and the results will be presented during the conference. Leading companies and research institutions will exhibit their products and demonstrate their technologies during the event. Several social events will round up the program by providing opportunities for participants to connect and network with colleagues, including a high-quality career fair and diversity outreach & networking event. The PHM Society will also offer separate, dedicated short courses focused on fundamental PHM concepts and techniques, as well as data analytics before the start of the main conference.

A major differentiator for the PHM Society is its unique approach toward intellectual property rights: Authors retain copyright in their work while allowing the PHM Society to distribute their work through a Creative Commons License. As a result, all articles published by the PHM Society are available to the global PHM community via the internet for free, without any restrictions, and in short order after the conference.

Prospective authors are invited to contribute full length, original, high- quality papers at The topics suggested by the conference can be categorized as analysis methods, asset-specific algorithms, prototype implementations, fielded systems, and business case analysis. Both research and industry contributions are welcomed. Submitted papers will be reviewed by experts based on the criteria of content, significance, technical validity, innovation, writing style, accuracy, clarity, simplicity and readability. For more information, please contact the Technical Committee Chairs at

The PHM 2022 Conference is planning to offer a set of tutorials that are providing coverage of topics of interest to the PHM audience. The tutorials are meant to provide a learning experience to the audience by giving a comprehensive introduction to the particular topic. Proposed tutorials need to address the interests of a varied audience: beginners, developers, designers, researchers, practitioners, and decision makers who wish to learn a given aspect of prognostic health management. For more information or to volunteer as a speaker, please contact Kai Goebel at
Tutorial Topics of Interest include (but are not limited to):
       Asset Health Management
       CBM Policies
       Cost-Benefit Analysis
       Diagnosis and Prognosis
       Life Cycle and Risk Management Methodologies
       PHM System Design and Engineering
       Standards and Methodologies
       Deep Learning
And other advanced topics.
The PHM Society invites sponsors to show off their monitoring, diagnostic, and/or prognostic engineering approaches through Technology Demonstrations and the Product Showcase Presentations.
The concept of the Technology Demonstrations is to offer a true “hands-on” learning experience to conference attendees. Multiple demonstrations will be given as brief tutorials to small groups, scheduled over a two-day period. Each demo will last for 30 – 60 minutes, where attendees will be encouraged to actively participate.
The Product Showcase track offers the opportunity for companies to advertise their products and/or services to conference attendees. Showcase presenters are provided a 10-minute timeslot to give marketing presentations via computer/table, projector, and microphone. Showcase presentations are not intended to be interactive and participants are encouraged to network with audience members after their showcase.
Tech Demo & Product Showcase Topics of Interest:
  • Certification and Validation Techniques for Health Management Applications
  • Fielded Prognostic or Advanced Diagnostic Systems
  • Innovative System Maintenance Approaches
  • Monitoring, Diagnostic, and/or Prognostic Hardware/Software Technologies
  • Rapid Aging Testing and Analysis Techniques
  • Sensors and Sensor Integration for PHM
  • System Identification Processes to Support PHM Goals
For more information on either the Technology Demonstrations or the Product Showcase Presentations, please contact Laurel Frediani and Derek DeVries at
Please Note: Demonstration/presentation hardware, software, concepts, material, data, etc., must be cleared for public release prior to the conference.
The PHM Society Doctoral Symposium will be held as a workshop on Monday, October 31. Full-time students are invited to submit their thesis ideas to the Doctoral Symposium. It provides an opportunity for graduate students to present their interests and plans at a formative stage in their research. The students will receive structured guidance from a panel of distinguished researchers as well as comments from conference participants and fellow students in a collegial setting.
