    About the Event

    The 15th International Symposium on Flammability and Sensitivity of Materials in Oxygen-Enriched Atmospheres will be held April 29-30, 2020. Sponsored by ASTM Committee G04 on Compatibility and Sensitivity of Materials in Oxygen Enriched Atmospheres, the symposium will be held at the Prague Marriott Hotel in Prague, Czech Republic, in conjunction with the April 2020 standards development meetings of the committee.

    Objective
    The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of peer-reviewed papers on topics related to fire hazards in oxygen, oxygen-enriched environments and other oxidizer systems.

    Topics for this symposium may include but not limited to:

    • Flammability of Materials in Oxygen and Oxygen-Enriched Environments
    • Combustion Rates of Materials in Oxygen and Oxygen-Enriched Environments
    • Toxicity of Combustion Products in Oxygen Fires
    • Flammability of Materials in non-Oxygen Oxidizer Environments
    • Mathematical Modeling of Combustion Processes in Oxygen-Enriched Environments
    • New Test Methods to Define Material Safety for Use in Oxygen Environments

    Who should attend?
    This symposium will be attended by scientists and engineers who are conducting research in oxygen, oxygen-enriched and other oxidizer systems. This has historically included officials of the United States Government, officials of various European Governments, and scientists from universities and research institutions. This symposium will also be attended by private manufacturing companies who must keep informed of all the latest research so that they can provide a safe product to their customers.

    The language of the symposium will be English.
