Coronavirus and April ISADE 2020, Charlotte, North Carolina

The Executive Committee of the Scientific Workshops organization met recently and made the hard decision to postpone our ISADE2020 conference in April due to the current international COVID-19 outbreak. We anticipate holding the meeting later this year and will send out notice as soon as we are able to reschedule.  The Hilton Hotel will automatically cancel out your room reservations and send you a confirmation email for your records in a day or two.  Paid registrants will be able to carry your registration and payment forward to the new meeting date; or, you can have us cancel your registration and issue a refund at 90% (which will cover the transaction processing fees).  You will receive a separate message directly from the Committee on refunds.  Unpaid registrations are automatically cancelled.

Additional information on the new dates will be provided at sometime in the future.

Trace Explosives Detection Workshop (TED)

 Presents ISADE 2020

ISADE, the International Symposium on the Analysis and Detection of Explosives, is the pre-eminent scientific conference for discussion of the detection and characterization of explosives in both security screening and forensic applications.

The organizing committee is hoping to  have a balance of topic areas to appeal to the broad range of interests within our community. The technical program is focused on developing a deeper understanding of the fundamental science that underpins optimized explosive detection. Events, such as invited tutorials, open discussion sessions and poster presentations, are an essential part of the meeting. Topics planned for the 2020 conference include (but are not limited to):

  • Emerging Forensic and Screening Technologies
  • Fundamentals of Trace Detection
  • HMEs
  • Standards
  • Forensic Case Studies and Worldwide Events
  • Attribution
  • Vapor Detection
  • Contact and Non Contact Sampling
  • Emerging Laboratory and Fieldable Detection Techniques
  • Illicit Narcotics Detections including Opioids
  • Canine Detection
  • Ask the Expert/Discussion Session
  • Tutorials
