Proceedings were issued for all conferences in this series. These may be accessed from this website in two ways: By Year or by the General Index. As well, photos from 2015 and 2017 are available from the links 2015_Photos and 2017_Photos respectively.
Access by Year
The links WS1999 to HUMS2015 access those conference papers using a modified version of the Proceedings for that year. Every conference is different; 1999 had two hardcopy documents, 2001 a hardcopy document and a CD-ROM, 2003 to 2013 each had a CD-ROM or part of one and 2015 and 2017 had papers on a shared USB Drive which also included all the Congress papers.
Best HUMS2017 peer-reviewed paper award was given to "Integrated Approach for Health Assessment of Engine Bearings through Numerical Simulation - M.D. Haneef, R.B. Randall, W.A. Smith, Z. Peng, UNSW" and the best HUMS2017 presentation was awarded to " Applying Machine Learning-Based Diagnostic Functions to Rotorcraft Safety - Daniel Wade, US Army AMRDEC".
Best HUMS2015 peer-reviewed paper award was given to "An Introduction to Prognostic Fingerprint Technology - John Baker, Copernicus Technology" and the best HUMS2015 presentation was awarded to "Wireless Sensor Units for HUMS Data Acquisition - Andrew Vechart, Honeywell Aerospace Advanced Technology".
One of the HUMS2013 presentations, that from David White of Spectra Technical Solutions Inc, was voted as the Best Presentation of the AIAC15 Congress. David covered 50 years of experience in 20 minutes. Pierre Bect from Eurocopter presented the Best HUMS2013 Paper.
The HUMS2011 menu includes a search engine which searches only 2011 papers.
The General Index is a pdf file with links to all available papers from all years. Some browser/pdf-reader combinations have not performed well on this search (eg Chrome with internal pdf reader, Chrome with external Acrobat works well). If you find this, save the pdf file and open it locally. The links in the pdf file will work outside the website (unlike the individual links above).
Pdf search can only cover words in the pdf index, ie names, affiliations, words which appear in titles. It does not see words in the papers themselves. Many papers were reviewed before submission; those Peer Reviewed by the HUMS Reviewers are identified by a yellow background on the link. [Not yet complete for earlier years.]
