19th Biennial APS Conference on Shock
Compression of Condensed Matter

Abstract Submission

Although the abstract submission deadline (January 30, 2015) has already passed, we are still accepting post-deadline abstracts. However, due to the limited capacity of the conference facilities, inclusion of post-deadline abstracts in the conference agenda is not guaranteed. We will inform post-deadline submitters about their acceptance after abstracts are sorted into oral sessions and posters, or when additional slots become available (due to abstract withdrawals) over the next couple of months.

Abstracts should be submitted online through the APS web site http://www.aps.org/meetings/meeting.cfm?name=SHOCK15 using the following sorting categories:

  1. Detonation and shock-induced chemistry
  2. Energetic and reactive materials
  3. Equation of state
  4. Experimental developments
  5. First-principle and molecular dynamics
  6. Geophysics and planetary science
  7. Grain scale to continuum modelling
  8. High energy density physics/warm dense matter
  9. Inelastic deformations, fracture and spall
  10. Materials strength
  11. Particulate, porous, and composite materials
  12. Phase transitions
  13. Soft matter

These SCCM-2015 sorting categories comprise 13 Technical Areas and 3 Focus Topics, which are described on the Scientific Program page of this site.

Useful Abstract Submission Tips

Abstract Submission Information can be found at http://www.aps.org/meetings/abstract/instructions.cfm
To speed up the submission process:

  • Select the "19th Biennial Conference of the APS Topical Group on Shock Compression of Condensed Matter" checkbox at the beginning of abstract submission.
  • Know the number and order of authors and collaborators.
  • Proofread your draft of the abstract body (contributed abstract body text is limited to approximately 1300 characters).
  • Know your technical area or focus topic; see their description at the Scientific Program page.
  • Choose whether you will use:
    • LaTeX format http://www.aps.org/meetings/abstract/latex.cfm. LaTeX is for straight TeX only. You can also use this option if your abstract is in plain text (no equations or symbols that require LaTeX formatting).
    • Microsoft Word Submission (RTF) Template http://www.aps.org/ meetings/abstract/rtf.cfm. RTF allows you to submit Rich Text Format files created with MS Word, using either the Equation Editor 3.0 and/or MathType. Avoid using MS Wordpad or TextEdit (Mac) to edit the RTF template as both are known to cause problems with the submission
