Mission

The Workshop on Pyrotechnic Combustion Mechanisms (WPC) has been founded in 2004. This occurred in an effort to provide a forum for scientists, engineers and technicians working in the field to facilitate an intensified exchange of ideas on the combustion mechanisms of pyrotechnic and other energetic materials. Since then the workshop is held intermittently adjacent to topically related conferences or seminars.

 

Concept

The workshop typically commences around 8 am with a get-together breakfast in the conference room, offering the opportunity to register and to meet with the presenters and other participants. Starting at 9 am the workshop features presentations of about an hour duration and sufficient time to facilitate discussion between the presenters and audience. Coffee breaks and a lunch break are held in the same room to avoid spread-out and unnecessary interruption of streams of thoughts. The workshop closes with a wrap-up session and dissemination of the presentations to the participants on a flash drive.
