An international conference on the fundamental science of explosives and other energetic materials.
This 1st International Explosives Conference (IEC-2020) is for all professionals involved in the fundamental science of explosives and energetic materials.
The focus of the conference is future developments and the principle themes for this inaugural event include (but are not limited to):
If you are interested in the science that underpins deeper understanding of explosives, propellants, pyrotechnics, gas generators, this is the event for your consideration. We invite all, from early careers through to subject matter experts, to be involved in the following ways:
By design the event is unclassified with a view to generating a truly international mix of speakers and delegates. With opportunities for networking, discussing and debating all things energetics, be sure to book your place at the event.
Record of proceedings will be published by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Founded by the University of Queensland, the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) challenges researchers to hone their presentation skills to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist.3MT guidance document
