Why You Should Attend this Year's Symposium:

The 7th Annual EOD/IED and Countermine Symposium will examine the US's whole of government approach to detecting, mitigating and destroying explosive devices at home and abroad. As improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and mines continue to cause high numbers of causalities around the world, it is paramount that the government remains vigilant in its efforts to improve explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), counter-IED and demining capabilities. This is especially important now as extremist groups have become increasingly sophisticated in their use of IEDs.
