ANCRiSST aims to assess current progress in smart materials and structures technology, developing global synergies among researchers in various disciplines to facilitate joint research projects that are of such scope and magnitude that they cannot be carried out by the individual centers. The 15th International Workshop on Advanced Smart Materials and Smart Structures Technology brings together researchers from around the world to define the state of the art and determine the next steps to preserve, restore, and strengthen global infrastructure through smart structures technology.
