The GRC on Energetic Materials brought together scientists from many countries working in government laboratories, research universitiesand private industry to discuss state-of-the-art research on explosives, pyrotechnics and propellants. The main topics of discussion weresynthesis of new materials, performance, advanced diagnostics, experimental techniques, theoretical approaches, and computational modelsfor simulating the behavior of energetic materials under a wide variety of conditions. The meeting was an important venue for presentingcutting edge fundamental research into the chemistry, physics and materials properties associated with ignition, combustion, detonation,ageing, thermal decomposition and mechanical damage of energetics. The program for the meeting included nine oral presentation sessions.Discussion leaders and speakers were drawn from the leading researchers in the field of energetic materials. The presentations focused oncurrent work and new results rather than summaries of published work. Afternoons were left free for informal discussions and otherunstructured activities.
