The International Personal Armour Committee (IPAC) is pleased to announce that PASS 2018 will be held at the Westin Washington DC City Center from 8 to 12 October 2018. This is the first PASS conference to be held in the United States, and the second to be held in North America.
PASS 2018 offers a unique opportunity for the exchange of views and experiences in the field of personal armour systems between academia, users and manufacturers. Experts will share the results of the latest research, and panel discussions will allow inputs from participants. Attendees will include representatives from defense and academic research organization, industry, military and police forces. The Symposium is focused on all aspects relating directly to personal protection e.g. military and police body armour, helmets, and EOD protection. In conjunction with the symposium, there will be an industry exhibition area to allow the discussion, illustration and promotion of ideas and equipment from our sponsors and exhibitors.
The International Personal Armour Committee (IPAC) is responsible for the selection of papers to be presented at PASS 2018. Every submission will be peer reviewed, and papers will be selected on the bases of originality, technical merit, clarity of presentation and general interest. Marketing presentations will not be accepted. The presentation of the selected paper at the Symposium will either be an oral presentation or a brief oral introduction followed by a poster session, as determined by the IPAC. A full and detailed program of papers will be available closer to the date of the Symposium.
