This is the 9th meeting in the series, which originated under the direction of Dr. Vladimir Klimenko (now Chair Emeritus of this meeting) and have been held in a number of locations including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Edinburgh and Paris. 

Technical Direction

This meeting will address areas relevant to shock waves and high-rate phenomena in all phases of matter. Subjects will focus on new research areas, which are becoming increasingly relevant to the Shock Community - these include, but are not restricted to:

  • shock waves in condensed material, including EoS, strength and damage and related experiments
  • shocks in HE, including unreacted and reacted EoS and modelling of the reaction zone and related experiments
  • computational methods for the simulation of shock processes, including continuum, mesoscale and microscale applications and multiscale linkage

Invited speakers will provide keynote addresses in each of these areas. Contributed papers will form the major part of the conference and will be of approximately 20 minutes length. Poster sessions will be timetabled. 

Papers from this conference will be published in a refereed conference proceedings.
