On 24-29 July 2016 in Dalian in China the eleventh International Symposium on Hazards, Prevention and Mitigation of Industrial Explosion (ISHPMIE) was organized. The symposium is a continuation of the six International Colloquium on Dust Explosions organized by professor Piotr Wolański in the years 1984-1993 in Poland and the seventh organized in 1994 in China.
Since 1994 the conference subject has been broadened and it is continuously organized every two years under the title “International Symposium on Hazards, Prevention and Mitigation of Industrial Explosion” (1996 in Norway, 1998 in USA, 2000 in Japan, 2002 in France, 2004 in Poland, 2006 in Canada, 2008 in Russia, 2010 in Japan, 2012 in Poland, 2014 in Norway and 2016 in China).
