SUSI 2006 is the ninth International Conference in the series on 'Structures 
Under Shock and Impact'. The meeting's chief objective is to attract support 
from as wide a spectrum of expertise as possible and across a broad range of 
impact problems throughout industry.

The shock and impact behaviour of structures is a difficult area, not only 
because of its obvious time-dependent aspects, but also because of the 
difficulties in specifying the external dynamic loading characteristics and 
in obtaining the full dynamic properties of materials. Thus it is important 
to recognise and fully utilise the contributions and understanding emerging 
from the theoretical, numerical and experimental studies, as well as 
investigations into the material properties under dynamic loading
Papers are invited on the interaction between blast pressure and surface or 
underground structures, whether the blast is from civilian, military, dust 
and natural explosions, or any other source.

The list of topics gives an idea of the wide range of applications to be 
discussed during the meeting. Contributions in topics not listed are also 
welcome if they fall within the scope of the SUSI Conference.

SUSI 2006 follows on from the other successful meetings in this series, 
which first started in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA (1989) and continued in 
Portsmouth, UK (1992); Madrid, Spain (1994); Udine, Italy (1996); 
Thessaloniki, Greece (1998); Cambridge, UK (2000); Montreal (2002); and 
Crete (2004).
