HVIS Hypervelocity Impact Symposium, Alexandria, Virginia, Fall 2022.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Hypervelocity Impact Society, we regret to inform you that the next Hypervelocity Impact Symposium, scheduled for October 24-29, 2021 will be postponed for one year due to concerns about COVID-19. We are exploring options to have a symposium in Alexandria to be held in the fall of 2022.

The Board of Directors explored several options for the next Symposium, including holding a virtual or hybrid meeting or electing for a postponement shorter than one year. It was decided that the best option of having a traditional meeting with the lowest chance for further disruption was to postpone for a full year. Making this decision now reduces financial risk to the Society but, more importantly, this is the right decision for the health and well being of our members, their families and colleagues.

We will send email updates when the new venue is settled.

We look forward to seeing you in 2022 at the next symposium!

The Hypervelocity Impact Symposium (HVIS) is a biennial event organized by the Hypervelocity Impact Society that serves as the principal forum for the discussion, interchange, and presentation of the physics of high- and hypervelocity impact and related technical areas. It is intended for scientists, engineers, and technical managers from the academia, industry, government, and defense programs. The HVIS Symposia have a long-standing international reputation as a catalyst for stimulating research in this area through a wealth of oral and poster presentations, and commercial exhibits. The Symposium’s proceedings are the major archival source of papers published in this field.
