The organisers took the unavoidable decision to cancel CWD 2020 due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. However, planning has continued to ensure that CWD 2021 will build on the success of CWD 2019, which was attended by more than 120 delegates from 13 countries, representing 53 organisations.

The programme - which includes new additions for 2021 - takes into account the changing demilitarisation landscape, including new threats, technical challenges and the approaching completion of destruction of declared chemical weapons stockpiles. Its scope will include wider science and technology issues related to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), including verification, chemical analysis and forensics. Abstracts on any of these and related topics, may be submitted on Dstl's new online registration platform.

Key dates:

  • Abstract submission closes: 15th January 2021
  • Presenter notification: 2nd April 2021
  • Registration closes: 3rd May 2021

During the two days of presentations, panel sessions, poster displays and equipment demonstrations, there will be ample opportunity for discussion and networking. The conference is open to anyone with a relevant interest in CWD, and is attended by representatives of governments, industry, academia and the armed forces.

The conference supports the global effort to eliminate chemical weapons and fosters cooperation through the exchange of information and ideas relating to safe disposal. CWD is the primary international forum for making valuable professional contacts in this field.
