The APS Topical Group on Shock Compression of Condensed Matter (GSCCM) was founded in 1984 to foster the development and exchange of information in the discipline of shock compression science. The Group organizes the biennial Topical Conference and publishes a Newsletter, providing an opportunity to disseminate information on shock compression research, including theoretical and computational studies, experimental methods and developments, and numerical methods that are necessary to facilitate an understanding of the physics of shock compression of condensed matter.
GSCCM needs a minimum number of members to continue its existence or the Shock Conference goes away.
