Summit on Geophysical Detection of Explosive Remnants of War: Solving Current Challenges of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) and Demining


30 April–2 May 2024

Workshop Overview

You are invited to submit an abstract to the Summit on Geophysical Detection of Explosive Remnants of War (ERW): Solving Current Challenges of Unexploded Ordnance and Demining. The virtual event will feature a technical program showcasing the latest in geophysical surveying and data processing for surveys performed on land, in water, and from the air. Besides former military training sites, the summit will address the interest that industry and governments are seeing in parts of the globe where kinetic engagements have been or are currently being fought. This would span across Europe and the Pacific islands from WW II engagements to current day Israel/Gaza and Ukraine. The event brings together researchers, industry professionals, and students to share and discuss recent advancements, challenges, and applications of geophysics for solving today’s detection, characterization, and removal of ERW.

The event will begin at 8:00 AM EST, which is UTC -4 hours, 3:00 PM EEST, 2:00 PM CEST, and 1:00 PM BST
