6–11 August 2006, Heidelberg, Germany
The 31st International Symposium on Combustion will be held 6–11 August at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. Hosted by the German Section of The Combustion Institute and the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing at the University of Heidelberg, the symposium is the largest international meeting in the field of combustion, bringing together the most renowned scientists from all over the world.
The purpose of this biennial event is to promote research and disseminate results in the field of combustion science. The symposium is open to anyone who is interested in the research of combustion phenomena. Participants have backgrounds in such diverse fields as physical chemistry, fuel technology, fluid dynamics, internal combustion engine design, fire research, environmental research, mechanical and aerospace engineering, and research on detonation.
The technical program of the 2006 symposium consists of oral sessions of contributed papers and poster sessions of works in progress. Invited lectures and topical reviews will be given by eminent specialists.
Selected topics include, among others:
- kinetics of hydrocarbon fuels, NOx and SOx mechanism generation, simplification, and reduction; and informatics of reaction systems
- development and application of diagnostic techniques and sensors for the understanding and control of combustion phenomena
- flames, including premixed, nonpremixed, and partially premixed flames, their ignition, extinction, stabilization, instabilities, and interactions with flows
- heterogeneous combustion, including fundamental aspects of combustion of solid fuels (e.g., coal, char, and biomass, including pyrolysis, gasification, and ash formation) as well as combustion of propellants and metals, catalytic combustion, and material synthesis, including nanoparticle synthesis
The well-rounded social program includes a reception at Heidelberg castle, a banquet at Schwetzingen castle, and a boat cruise on the Neckar River. For accompanying persons, there are various tours available, including visits to Strasbourg (France) and the Lorely.
