About the Symposium

The 10th ISADE is being hosted by the Australian National Centre for Forensic Studies (www.ncfs.edu.au). The National Centre for Forensic Studies is a collaboration between the University of Canberra and the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT), in association with the Australian Federal Police (AFP). The Centre brings together many forensic science disciplines, including biology, chemistry (including explosive residue analysis), crime scene investigation, toxicology, and computer forensics.  In addition, emerging areas of forensic science in which the Centre is engaged include environmental forensic chemistry and wildlife forensics.


The ISADE is a prestigious international conference that provides a stage for technical experts and Government leaders from around the world in the field of explosives. Concentrating on analysis and detection, the participants present results and discuss ground-breaking developments in this field. The Symposium is intended to cover:

  1. Reports of research on analysis methods and approaches
  2. Reports of research on detection methodologies
  3. Reports on the application of science in casework
  4. Discussion of developments in the field
