Good news! If you wanted to submit an abstract for a chance to present at the 47th Annual Conference on Explosives & Blasting Technique, but weren’t able to meet the deadline, the call for papers has been extended to Friday, June 12.

Papers addressing all explosives and blasting related topics will be considered. Accepted papers will be scheduled for one of the technical sessions or the Blasters Forum, a multimedia poster event with one-on-one interaction between the author and audience.

What’s new this Year
In previous years, students had separate calls for papers and separate deadlines. To streamline the submission process, this will be the only call for papers this year for both industry professionals and students. If you would like to submit an abstract, but still feel you might not be able to meet the new deadlines because of a project put on temporary hold, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
