The Asia-Pacific Conference on Combustion (ASPACC) is a biennial meeting sponsored by the Combustion Institute and organized by members of the Asia-Pacific regional sections. Its goal is to promote exchange of information and to elevate combustion science and technology through regional and global scientific partnership. The first ASPACC conference was held in Osaka, Japan in 1997, followed by Tainan, Taiwan (1999), Seoul, Korea (2001), Nanjing, China (2003), Adelaide, Australia (2005), Nagoya, Japan (2007), Taipei, Taiwan (2009), Hyderabad, India (2010), Gyeongju, Korea (2013), Beijing, China (2015), and Sydney, Australia (2017).
The 12th ASPACC will be hosted by the Japan Section of the Combustion Institute, and will be held on July 1 to 5, 2019 in Fukuoka, Japan. The conferences will provide a forum for mutual exchange of information in the Asia-Pacific combustion community involved in both fundamental and application oriented research and development works.
In 2019, the organizing committee will be spread in the community of the Asia-Pacific regional sections of the Combustion Institute, mainly the Japan Section.
A robust technical program is anticipated as the scope and intensity of combustion research in the Asia-Pacific region has been undergoing rapid expansion in recent years. The 12th ASPACC will bring together scientists and engineers to find out the current state of progress in the topics of interest in combustion science and technology.
The technical program will consist of an opening plenary session which will address the progress and the challenges in a historical context and regular technical sessions covering broad areas on combustion, which include the following:
- Gas-Phase Reaction Kinetics
- Soot, Nanomaterials, and Large Molecules
- Laminar Flames
- Turbulent Flames
- Spray, Droplet, and Supercritical Combustion
- Detonations, Explosions, and Supersonic Combustion
- Solid Fuel Combustion
- Fire Research
- Stationary Combustion Systems and Control of Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Internal Combustion Engines
- Gas turbine and Rocket Engine Combustion
- New Concepts
An engaging social program is also being planned to enrich the conference experience.
