SEVENTH
INTERNATIONAL
CONFERENCE
ON NUMERICAL
COMBUSTION

30th March to 1st April, 1998
St John's College, York

Organised by (UK and Republic of Ireland)
in cooperation with

The Seventh International Conference on Numerical Combustion will focus on the integration of theory, modelling, and numerical implementation in the fundamental study and technological application of combustion phenomena.

Advances in computational algorithms and hardware, and in theoretical methods continue to have a revolutionary impact in challenging major difficulties in the study of combustion. Physically applicable, efficient, and accurate numerical solution of complex combustion phenomena, their associated theory and modelling, and their relationship to experiment, are the subjects of the conference.

VENUE

The University College of Ripon and York St John (or simply, St John's College) is close to the centre of the historic walled city of York in the north of England. The college provides good conference facilities, with accommodation in student apartments or in nearby hotels. York is easily accessible by train from London (two hours from Kings Cross Station) and, via a direct rail connection, from Manchester International Airport.

CONFERENCE THEMES

The themes of the conference include, but are by no means limited to:

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The Seventh International Conference on Numerical Combustion will bring together research and design engineers, and scientists specialising in computational techniques, mathematics and physics, who are interested in the interdisciplinary area of "numerical combustion."

The conference will highlight the mutual interaction between designers, experimentalists, computational experts, and mathematicians in the development of new ideas and methods in the study and industrial application of all aspects of combustion.

EXHIBITS

Publishers, software and hardware suppliers and service organisations having products to offer to conference participants and attendees are invited to join in the exhibition. Contact the organisers for further information and exhibit fees.
