The following events might be of interest to you:

Additive Manufacturing Workshop (part of CoEEM Formulations, Manufacture and Processing Club)


An on-line Additive Manufacturing Workshop, 8th of September 2020

The aim of this workshop will be to bring together representatives from UK organisations engaged in research and development relevant to Additive Energetics Manufacture in order to discuss technical progress in this space. It is hoped that, in doing this, attendees will be able to better understand the current state of the technology; share best practice; deconflict R&D efforts; and identify future avenues of collaboration.

Call for presentations in the following areas:

  • The purchase, development or modification of additive manufacturing equipment suitable for use with energetic materials (such as explosives, propellants or pyrotechnics);
  • The development of new energetic materials or formulations suitable for additive manufacturing;
  • Assessment of the “printability” of new or existing energetic materials, for example using rheological parameters or testing;
  • Assessment of printed energetics in terms of their mechanical or energetic properties;
  • The use of additive manufacturing to support applications in energetics;
  • Other relevant additive manufacturing applications, such as those based on extrusion or photocuring of granular composites.

Please register your interest, whether it be in attending the workshop or presenting, by e-mailing Purnima Patani ( by the 10th of July.

If wishing to present, please include a draft title.  An abstract is not required at this stage. At present, each presentation slot is expected to be 20 minutes, including time for questions. 

We hope to see you (virtually) in September.

FULMINATION 2021: Inaugural Combined International Explosives Conference **NEW DATES**


The Institute of Explosives Engineers (IExpE) is the natural home for anyone working within the explosives industry. IExpE prides itself in promoting best practices and therefore fostering the highest standards across all sectors of the industry.

IExpE is the professional body for the explosives industry that enables and promotes consultation between individuals, professional private organisations, government departments, and armed forces experts.

Fulmination 2021 is the all in one event incorporating the former Ordnance, Munitions, and Explosives Conference (OME), Early Careers Symposium and the IExpE Conference.

By bringing all sectors of the industry together Fulmination 2021 will provide greater networking opportunities to drive the industry together, towards tomorrow.

Location: Reading, UK

Date: 20/04/2021 - 22/04/2021

The 7th International Symposium on Energetic Materials and their Applications (ISEM2020)


The objectives of the 7th International Symposium on Energetic Materials and their Applications (ISEM2020) include both fundamental researches and industrial applications relevant to energetic materials, and are to obtain an overview of the most recent international research efforts and to provide opportunities for scientists and engineers to establish avenues for cooperation and collaboration.

Location: Hitotsubashi Hall, Tokyo, JAPAN

Date: 15/11/2021 - 19/11/2021


ECC8 – 8th EuChemS Chemistry Congress


2020 Event Postponed to August 28, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic that so deeply affects our lives and countries is not expected to end soon, and its consequences will be felt for a long time. In particular, satisfactory conditions for international scientific conferences to take place will certainly not be fulfilled in the next months. We are thus forced to postpone the 8th EuChemS Chemistry Congress. On the 3rd of May, 2020 the Executive Board of EuChemS, in consultation with the Scientific and Organizing Committee in Portugal were able to settle on a new date for the 8th EuChemS Chemistry Congress.

This was no easy decision but was a necessary one, and the only appropriate option, given the enormous material and immaterial compromise already assumed by the local organization. We praise our supporters and all the body of EuChemS, in particular the organizers of the forthcoming event on the series, for joining the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ), with the support of the Portuguese Electrochemical Society (SPE), in the announcement of the new date of 8th EuChemS Chemistry Congress (ECC8), to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, from August 28 to September 1, 2022. 

Location: Lisbon, Portugal

Date: 28/08/2022 - 01/09/2022
