The ISEE Conference Program Committee is issuing an industry wide Call for Papers to be presented at the 44th Annual Conference and published in the Conference Proceedings. Here’s your chance to share your techniques, strategies, solutions, product innovations and research discoveries with your peers.
Ideas should be submitted in the form of a 200-400 word abstract (summary) highlighting the major points of your 8-10 page paper. Papers may not be commercial in nature. It should be written so that it makes sense standing on its own and should cover the work done, recommendations made, conclusions drawn as a result of the project, case or study.
Abstracts must be submitted using this submission site by May 12, 2017. Chapter sponsored papers must be submitted by the deadline.
Abstracts are considered by a committee of explosives industry professionals using a blind review process. The committee will determine the paper’s relevance and substance based on the following criteria:
Abstracts will be used only for tentative selection. Final selection and acceptance is based on the completed paper submitted on time.
Detailed instructions regarding paper format and presentation requirements will be posted on the submission site after you receive the notification of abstract acceptance.
The program committee will assign each paper to a session upon acceptance of the completed paper. The paper will be assigned to a technical session or Blasters Forum Poster Session.
Papers must be submitted and presented in English, the official language of the conference.
Notification of acceptance or rejection of abstracts will be sent by June 15, 2017.
