Call for Papers

The 2013 CI/CS Spring Technical Meeting is an opportunity to meet academic and industrial combustion experts from across Canada, as well as international researchers in combustion. Technical papers are solicited on all aspects of combustion, particularly those related to the following topics:

  • Detonations, Explosions, and Supersonic Combustion
  • Diagnostics
  • Engine Combustion
  • Fire Research
  • Heterogeneous Combustion and Material Synthesis
  • Laminar flames
  • New Technology Concepts
  • Numerical methods/simulations
  • Reaction Kinetics
  • Soot, PAH, and Other Large Molecules
  • Spray and Droplet Combustion
  • Stationary Combustion Systems and Evironmental Impact
  • Turbulent Flames

Papers may cover a broad range of focus, from fundamental combustion phenomena to practical applications of combustion technology. Papers from industrial organizations are strongly encouraged. Presentation of a paper at this meeting does not constitute an archival publication. Newcomers to combustion research and students are particularly encouraged to submit papers.

To Submit a Paper

  • Authors should submit a one-page abstract of your paper in PDF format to by Monday, March 11th, 2013.
  • When submitting your abstract, please specify the author's contact information (name, address, phone, fax, and e-mail address) and the most appropriate topic area from the above list ( the abstract's length may varies from 400 words up to the full paper ).
