The US National Combustion Meeting is the premier combustion science meeting in the US and has been organized biennially since 1999 by the joint US Sections of the Combustion Institute (the Eastern States Section or ESSCI, the Central States Section or CSSCI, and the Western States Section or WSSCI). The 2017 10th US National Combustion Meeting is hosted by the University of Maryland at College Park and by the Eastern States Section of the Combustion Institute.
We expect more than 400 students, scientists and engineers at the meeting, representing the leading edge of combustion research. The meeting will begin on Sunday afternoon, April 23, with a Welcome Reception and will end mid-day on Wednesday, April 26. We expect that the technical program will include 3 invited plenary lectures, oral presentations of more than 350 papers during 8 parallel sessions, and at least one poster session.
The 10th US National Combustion Meeting will be held at the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center located on the campus of the University of Maryland at College Park. As the state’s flagship university, the University of Maryland at College Park educates close to 40,000 of the most talented students from Maryland and beyond. The University has a long standing tradition of teaching science and engineering. The A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland hosts more than 4500 students, 200 faculty members and 8 Academic Departments including the Departments of Aerospace Engineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering and Mechanical Engineering that all have combustion research activities.
