Did you have a recent breakthrough on a project? Submit your findings for a chance to present your work at the world’s largest conference on explosives engineering.

Abstracts for the 47th Annual Conference on Explosives & Blasting Technique, to be held Feb. 7-10, 2021, at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, Fla., are now being accepted by the International Society of Explosives Engineers.

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 the audience.

Abstracts of approximately 200-400 words are due by May 29, 2020. Please contact us if you do not receive confirmation within two weeks of submitting your abstract. Chapter sponsored abstracts/papers must be submitted by the deadline.

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.

COVID-19 and Deadlines
Because of COVID-19, deadlines throughout the entire paper submission process have already been extended. Check the abstract submission site for all the details. If you would like to submit an abstract, but feel you might not be able to meet the paper deadlines because of a project put on temporary hold, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

About the Conference
The Annual Conference on Explosives & Blasting Technique is the largest gathering of its kind involving field blasters, manufacturers of explosives-related products, educators and researchers. The conference provides a forum for the discussion of practical and technical information as well as presentation of the latest discoveries in the commercial explosives industry worldwide. ISEE members and non-members are invited to submit ideas for papers to be presented at the conference.
Presented papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference and at onemine.org, which is home to more than 124,000 articles, technical papers, books in the explosives, mining, minerals and tunneling industries from ISEE, SME, NIOSH, AusIMM, CIM, SAIMM, TMS, IMPC, DFI and IIMP.
