Cantera Workshop

Cantera Workshop & Forum

College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center
3501 University Blvd East, Hyattsville MD 20783
Sunday April 23, 2017 (4:00-6:00 pm)

Cantera is an open-source suite of object-oriented software tools for problems involving kinetics, thermodynamics, and/or transport. Among other things, it can be used to:

  • Evaluate thermodynamic and transport properties of mixtures
  • Compute chemical equilibrium
  • Evaluate species chemical production rates
  • Conduct kinetics simulations with large reaction mechanisms
  • Simulate one-dimensional flames
  • Conduct reaction path analysis
  • Create process simulations using networks of stirred reactors
  • Model non-ideal fluids

This Workshop & Forum will cover basic usage of Cantera, getting started with Cantera development, and a discussion panel regarding future directions for Cantera. The Workshop will be hosted by the lead developers of Cantera. Everyone is welcome, and we especially encourage new users to attend! Further information is available at or by email at
