The objective of the triennial international ESHP conferences is to create a forum where people involved inscientific research or industrial applications related to explosion, shock waves and high-strain-rate phenomena can meet and discuss results and ideas. The symposium is comprised of invited lectures and contributed presentations. Oral and poster presentations are arranged for the contributed presentations. 


The symposium is planned to discuss the recent progress of theoretical,numerical and experimental researches on explosion,shock waves and high-strain-rate phenomena. The symposium covers the following general topics but the category is not limited: deflagration, detonation, and shock chemistry of energetic and reactive materials; shock wave and related phenomena in condensed and gaseous phases; response of materials and structures under high strain rates; production of materials by shock and detonation waves (shock induced phase transition and chemical reactions, explosive welding, Shock modification,etc); innovative application of high-energy-rate phenomena. Additional contributions from related research areas are also welcome. The organizers of ESHP2016  would also like to organize three special sessions:

Session 1 Shock processing and production of materials, Organizers: Prof. Pengwan Chen & Prof. Kazuyuki Hokamoto
Session 2 Numerical simulation of explosion and impact, Organizers: Prof. Cheng Wang, Prof. Xiaowei Chen & Prof. Zoran Ren
Session 3 Dynamic behavior of materials at high strain rates, Organizers: Prof. Yulong Li & Prof. Daniel Rittel

Workshop on High Pressure Food Processing (HPFP) 
as a part of ESHP2016 (25-28 Sept, 2016; Beijing, P.R.China)
Organizers: Prof. Shigeru Itoh & Prof. Motonobu Goto 

The Special Workshop, HPFP, is planned to have an active discussion on food processing and science using high static and dynamic pressure to improve the quality of foods which are processed through various unique processes. The participants are hereby informed to submit the papers. Limited number of the presented papers will be published as a Special Issue in the International Journal of Food Science by Hindawi Pub. Corp. through peer reviewing. After publishing the special issue, submission fee will be requested by the publisher.
