The Hypervelocity Impact Symposium (HVIS) is a biennial event organized bythat 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.
A selection of high-quality papers will be recommended for publication in a special edition of the International Journal of Impact Engineering.
