First Announcement:

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:

ORGANISATION

The 7th ICNC will be the first major international scientific conference organised by SIAM outside of North America. This has been made possible by the creation of a new section of SIAM based in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland


The conference is being organised in cooperation with:

ORGANISING COMMITTEE

Local Committee:

John Dold- Mathematics Department, UMIST, Manchester

Andy McIntosh- Fuel and Energy Department, University of Leeds

Steering Committee Members:

Roland Borghi John Buckmaster
Sebastian Candel Stuart Cant
Vincent Giovangigli Robert Kee
Bernard Larrouturou Elaine Oran
Norbert Peters Bernd Rogg

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE

CONTRIBUTED PRESENTATIONS IN LECTURE OR POSTER FORMAT:
Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the aims of the conference. A lecture consists of a presentation of about 20 minutes with an additional five minutes for discussion. A poster presentation will be mounted on a poster-board (measuring approximately two square metres). A poster session is two hours long.

Each contributor, either for a lecture or for a poster, must submit a camera-ready copy of an extended abstract not exceeding two pages typed using single spacing on white A4 paper within an area measuring 16cm by 24cm (or 6.3 inches by 9.5 inches). Abstracts should begin with the title of the paper followed by each author's name, affiliation and e-mail address.

Abstracts that deviate significantly from these guidelines will not be considered.

A book of abstracts will be available to registered participants at the conference.

MINISYMPOSIA

A minisymposium is a two-hour session consisting of four 25 minute presentations with an additional five minutes for discussion. Prospective organisers are asked to submit a title, a description (not exceeding one hundred words) and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations. Each minisymposium speaker must also submit a two-page extended abstract as for contributed presentations, which will also appear in the book of abstracts.

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.
