About the Event

The ASTM Committee G04 standards development meetings will be held October 21, 2024 - October 22, 2024.  The  symposium will be held October 23, 2024 - October 24, 2024.  The Monday meetings and the symposium will take place at the Grandior Hotel Prague, Prague, Czech Republic.


Objective and Scope of the Symposium

The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of peer-reviewed papers on topics related to fire hazards in oxygen, oxygen-enriched environments, and other oxidizer systems.

Topics for this symposium may include but not limited to:

  • Flammability of Materials in Oxygen and Oxygen-Enriched Environments
  • Combustion Rates of Materials in Oxygen and Oxygen-Enriched Environments
  • Toxicity of Combustion Products in Oxygen Fires
  • Flammability of Materials in non-Oxygen Oxidizer Environments
  • Mathematical Modeling of Combustion Processes in Oxygen-Enriched Environments
  • New Test Methods to Define Material Safety for Use in Oxygen Environments


Who Should Attend

This symposium will be attended by scientists and engineers who are conducting research in oxygen, oxygen-enriched and other oxidizer systems. This has historically included officials of the United States Government, officials of various European Governments, and scientists from universities and research institutions. This symposium will also be attended by private manufacturing companies who must keep informed of all the latest research so that they can provide a safe product to their customers.


Abstract Submission

To participate in the symposium, authors must submit a 250 to 300-word preliminary abstract using the online Abstract Submission Portal no later than August 4, 2023. To ensure your abstract was received into the ASTM database, please email and let us know that you have submitted an abstract.

The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The presentation and manuscript must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously published. Because a limited number of abstracts will be accepted, be sure that the abstract is complete to allow for careful assessment of the paper's suitability for this symposium. The symposium chair(s) will notify you via email by September 22, 2023 of your paper’s acceptability for presentation at the symposium. If the preliminary abstract is accepted, the author will be requested to submit a final abstract a few months before the symposium. The final abstracts will be distributed in a program booklet at the symposium.


Publication Information

Symposium authors are required to submit their papers for ASTM publication in Selected Technical Papers (STP), an online and printed, peer-reviewed publication for the international scientific and engineering community. STP papers should be full-length technical papers of approximately 10,000 words, significantly contribute to the technical literature, and must include a review of past work in the relevant area and present information of current interest or probe new fields. After the final selection of abstracts has been approved, the ASTM Editorial Office will send authors’ instructions via email, but also can be found by clicking here.

Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for the STP are due online no later than April 26, 2024 at the ASTM Editorial Office. The corresponding author (the author who is the main contact with ASTM Headquarters) will receive a copy of his/her paper in portable document format (PDF). All published authors will have the opportunity to purchase reprints of their papers at a nominal cost. Only those papers submitted by the manuscript due date will be included in the STP. Please note that all submitted papers are subject to peer review by two independent reviewers.

The STP will be submitted to the Library of Congress with an ISBN number and will be reviewed for inclusion in the Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and Google Scholar.
