Abstract:

Welcome to Williamsburg, Virginia and the UXO FORUM 1996. Over the next three days you will have the opportunity to participate in numerous discussions dealing with the topic of unexploded ordnance UXO. Millions of acres within the continental United States contain UXO as a result of military testing and training. UXO is not only a domestic concern, but a worldwide concern. Therefore, this conference attempts to address many of the diverse, worldwide issues associated with UXO contamination. During the UXO FORUM 1996, you will hear various presentations about technologies that can be applied to detect, identify, characterize, and remediate UXO. The policies, procedures, and regulations which are applied for UXO management will also be discussed. And, you will learn how the U.S. Department of Defense DoD is aggressively addressing UXO issues. An extensive exhibit session will aid in the exchange of information and provide networking opportunities. This conference program contains an agenda, presentation abstracts, exhibit descriptions, and a list of all the preregistered attendees. The conference proceedings will be published and mailed to you in May 1996. Please complete the conference evaluation form and return it to the registration desk or mail it to the address provided on the form. Your comments and critiques of the UXO FORUM 1996 will help shape future conferences.
