Forward Thinking: New Approaches, Concepts, and Paradigms Towards Understanding and Predicting EM Response

The 2014 Gordon Research Conference on Energetic Materials, and its associated Gordon Research Seminar, will present the latest fundamental science of the physics and phenomena underlying the performance of energetic materials: explosives, propellants, pyrotechnics, and thermites. Presenters and attendees are scientists and engineers associated with government laboratories, research universities, and private industry that come together from across the globe to discuss multidisciplinary fundamental research on energetic materials. Topics of discussion include theory, chemistry, material properties, and physics associated with characterization, initiation, combustion, detonation, ageing, thermal decomposition, synthesis, and sensitivity of energetic materials. The Conference will bring together a collection of investigators who are at the forefront of their field and will provide opportunities for junior scientists and graduate students to present their work in poster format at as well as meet and exchange ideas with leaders in the field. The collegial atmosphere of this Conference, with programmed discussion sessions as well as multiple opportunities for informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provides an avenue for scientists from different disciplines to brainstorm new concepts and paradigms while also promoting cross-disciplinary collaborations in the various research areas represented.
