Shock metamorphism in terrestrial and extra-terrestrial rocks
June 26 – 29, 2017
Location: Curtin University @ St Georges Terrace, Perth, Western Australia
Followed by a 3-day field trip to the Wolfe Creek crater, Halls Creek, WA

Purpose and Scope

We invite researchers of all backgrounds who share a common interest in studying shock effects in geologic media and impact-related processes in the solar system. This multi-disciplinary workshop is aimed at bringing together different research aspects, from the state-of-the-art laboratory methodologies in terrestrial and extra-terrestrial rocks, mineral and meteorite sample analyses, to numerical modelling and laboratory experiments of shock-wave progression in geologic and planetary analogue materials.

Meeting format

A four-day meeting will take place at Curtin University @ St Georges Terrace, in the heart of Perth’s CBD in the close proximity to local hotels, restaurants and shops.

Considering the multi-disciplinary nature of the workshop, we encourage speakers to keep their contributions at a level appropriate for a broader scientific audience. There will be no parallel sessions in order to focus on the interdisciplinary nature of the meeting.

The meeting will be followed by a three-day field trip to the Wolfe Creek crater, located near Halls Creek in Western Australia.

Special Issue

The outputs of this workshop are planned to be published in the Meteoritics & Planetary Science journal as a Special Issue. We aim for a collection of present knowledge in the field along with any new findings.

Topical sessions include:

Terrestrial shocked rocks
Meteorites
Numerical impact modelling
Laboratory impact experiments
Confirmed invited speakers include:

Tom Davison (Imperial College London, UK)
Thomas Kenkmann (University of Freiburg, Germany)
Gordon Osinski (University of Western Ontario, Canada)
Sonia Tikoo-Schantz (Rutgers University, USA)
Gretchen Benedix (Curtin University)
Aaron Cavosie (Curtin University)

Early bird registration is now open and submissions close May 14, 2017.
