2012 Princeton-CEFRC Summer School Details Announced

Thursday, Dec 22, 2011

The 2012 session of the Princeton-CEFRC Summer School is scheduled for June 24 - 29, 2012 at Princeton University.

This year's program has been expanded to offer an even broader variety of topics -- something very much sought after, based on feedback from prior year participants. This year, the Summer School will offer a five-day lecture series, “Frontiers of Combustion” covering topics in Policies and Issues in Energy and the Environment, given by Professor Robert H. Socolow; New Developments in Combustion Technology, given by Dr. George A. Richards; Alternative Fuels Including Biofuels, given by Professor William H. Green; Cyber-Combustion, given by Dr. Jacqueline H. Chen; and Nanoengineered Reactive Materials and Their Combustion and Synthesis, given by Professor Richard A. Yetter. In addition to this exciting new offering, the foundational courses of Combustion Theory and Combustion Chemistry are still offered, and will be taught by Professors Heinz G. Pitsch and Hai Wang, respectively. Another addition to the foundational courses is Internal Combustion Engines (Gas Turbines and Reciprocating Engines) to be jointly given by Professors Timothy C. Lieuwen and Rolf D. Reitz.

Detailed information is available at http://www.princeton.edu/cefrc/combustion-summer-school/. Online applications will be accepted beginning March 1, 2012, and the deadline for applications is March 16, 2012.
