The EFEE World Conference on Explosives and Blasting has established itself as one of the key international blasting events. Our Lyon conference in 2015 was attended by over 450 delegates from 50 countries with a large industry exhibition. We are excited to announce that the 9th World Conference will be held in the beautiful city of Stockholm, Sweden.

The conference will take place from Sunday 10th to Tuesday 12th September 2017 and includes technical presentations, an industry exhibition, educational workshops, welcome drinks reception, gala dinner and partner programme.

The event draws attention from explosives users, manufacturers and drilling equipment operators as well as researchers and professionals involved in the construction and mining industry.

The technical sessions will be divided into key themes. Authors will present their papers in English to an audience in a lecture style format with some time for questions from the audience.

The conference will focus on practical papers on the following themes:

• EU Directives and Harmonisation Work
• Health, Safety and the Environment
• Blast Vibration and Seismology
• Technical Development
• Shot Hole Development
• Blasting Work Experiences
• Construction Blasting
• Clearance and Decontamination
