CMVA conference

The Canadian Machinery Vibration Association

CMVA  / ACVM is a non-profit association whose areas of interest include machine dynamics and all facets of machine condition monitoring and predictive maintenance, especially vibration monitoring and analysis.

A significant event for DYNAMO, the CMVA seminar has been attended by professors and students over the last ten years or so, who have published accompanying articles for the event. In 2010, three of our students received awards for their work.

2014 Seminar

The annual CMVA Seminar is organized to provide a forum for technology interchange and discussions among practitioners in the field of machinery vibration analysis, condition monitoring, balancing and associated technologies. An important aim of the seminar is to encourage the exchange of ideas and experience between end users, suppliers, academics/researchers and those performing 'hands on' work in the field.

The 2014 seminar was held at the École de Technologie Supérieure, Montreal, from October 29 to 31, 2014. The theme is "Maintenance, Reliability and Safety"..
