Abstract

The Fourth International Symposium on Hazards, Prevention, and Mitigation of Industrial Explosions includes two very important events:

- The TENTH INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM ON DUST EXPLOSIONS is the successive meeting of a series of colloquia organized since 1984 in Baranow, Poland and then in: Jadwisin, Poland (1986); Szczyrk, Poland (1988); Porabka-Kozubnik, Poland (1990); Pultusk, Poland (1993); Shenyeng, China (1994); Bergen, Norway (1996); Schaumburg, Illinois, USA (1998); Tsukuba, Japan (2000).

- The FIFTH COLLOQUIUM ON GAS, VAPOR, LIQUID, HYBRID EXPLOSIONS is the successive meeting of a series of colloquia organized since 1981 in Montreal, Canada and then in Bergen, Norway (1996); Schaumburg, Illinois, USA (1998); Tsukuba, Japan (2000).

ISHPMIE IV, The Fourth International Symposium on Hazards, Prevention, and Mitigation of Indutrial Explosions was held in Bourges, France, at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Ingénieurs de Bourges (ENSIB), Laboratoire Énergétique Explosions Structures (LEES) in October 2002. This is a site where Professor J. Brossard conducted early research on gaseous detonation and safety aspects and the ENSIB is a specialised engineering school in industrial risks.
