Peer Review Process
Papers are considered by a committee of explosives industry professionals. This is not a blind review. The committee will determine the paper’s relevance and substance based on the following criteria:

  • Purpose and reason for the work
  • Quality of the data collected
  • Quality of the analysis and processes followed
  • Degree of rigor behind the recommendations made or actions taken
  • Conclusions based on data and analysis presented
  • Application and interest to the Explosives industry

Special consideration for acceptance at the Conference will be made for Blasters, and other Explosives Professionals, whose work is primarily day to day, hands-on-blasting in commercial construction, demolition, quarrying and mining applications.

Paper Presentation
The Program Committee will assign each paper to a session upon acceptance of the completed paper. The paper will be assigned to a Technical Session or Blasters Forum Poster Session. Some authors may be requested to present both. (Space is limited.)

Official Language
Papers must be submitted and presented in English, the official language of the Conference.

As noted in “Key Dates”, authors have until July 14, 2023 to submit their papers to the Portal. Authors will be notified on September 1 as to whether their paper has been selected for inclusion in the 2024 ISEE Conference.
