2017 Shock Compression of Condensed Matter Conference
20th Biennial APS Conference on Shock Compression of Condensed Matter

Welcome to SCCM-2017

The 20th Biennial International Conference of the APS Topical Group on Shock Compression of Condensed Matter (SCCM-2017) will be held at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch July 9-14, 2017. This conference is an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of world-wide efforts in exploring fundamental science and applications of matter at extreme conditions including shock-induced materials behavior, plasticity, phase transitions, and chemical reactions; high strain rate phenomena; properties of energetic materials and detonation phenomena; high- pressure and high temperature synthesis and characterization of novel materials; properties of matter in the warm dense regime; and new computational methods.
