April 16, 2010

The 33rd International Symposium on Combustion, organized by the Combustion Institute, will be hosted by Tsinghua University in Beijing, China on August 1- 6, 2010.

At this widely-attended biennial symposium, three of the five plenary lectures will be delivered by principal investigators from the CEFRC. In the opening "Hottel Lecture", Professor Ronald K. Hanson of Stanford University will present modern techniques for studying chemical kinetics.

Dr. Jacqueline H. Chen of Sandia National Laboratories will discuss turbulent combustion modeling, and Professor Hai Wang of the University of Southern California will address combustion-generated particulates: soot and material synthesis.

The other two plenary lectures will be delivered by Dr. Marcus Alden of the Lund Institute of Technology and Professor Kaoru Maruta of Tohoku University.
