Registration opens for the 23rd International Chemical Weapons Demilitarisation (CWD) Conference hosted by The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl)
Conference to support the global effort to eliminate chemical weapons will take place in May 2020.
The two-day conference supports the global effort to eliminate chemical weapons and fosters co-operation through the exchange of information and ideas relating to safe disposal.
The next CWD Conference will be held in May 2020, London. In addition to having the opportunity to hear from world experts in the field, the conference includes multiple networking opportunities, including a drinks reception and dinner on the first evening.
Each year the conference brings together representatives from 53 organisations from 13 countries and is the world’s largest international gathering of professionals involved in the demilitarisation of chemical weapons. Many delegates hold senior policy positions within government, the armed forces, industry, academia and research and development establishments.
The CWD Conference provides a unique opportunity to showcase the global progress in chemical weapons destruction and enables delegates to develop their knowledge and understanding with a common goal: working together to achieve a safer, cleaner world.
Oral and poster presentation for the CWD Conference 2020 will cover the following themes, and we welcome abstract submissions on these areas:
- Progress on global CW destruction
- Solutions to destruction challenges
- Emerging risks - strategic and operational
- Forensics, analysis and attribution
- Elimination research and development
