The 4th Australian Energetic Materials Symposium will bring together interested individuals from a variety of backgrounds. These backgrounds include academia, defence, industry, regulatory, policing as well as research and development. The discussions will be wide ranging with focuses on areas such as cutting edge research, current Australian issues, mechanisms to share information, novel applications in all areas of energetic materials (defence, mining, etc.). Previous symposia have been run in 2008, 2010 and 2012 (alternate years with PIRARI).  These symposia play a major role in establishing an energetic materials community in Australia with wide ranging and forward looking interests.

The meeting will consist of sessions each featuring a keynote address followed by presentations on the current and future frontiers of research in energenic materials.
