The symposium is the twelfth in a series on combustion and related topics, held by the scientific communities from countries around the Mediterranean. The first Mediterranean Combustion Symposium was held in Antalya, Turkey, June 1999, the second took place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, January 2002, the third in Marrakech, Morocco, June 2003, the fourth in Lisbon, Portugal, October 2005, the fifth in Monastir, Tunisia, September 2007, the Sixth in Corsica, France, June 2009, the seventh in Chia Laguna, Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy, September 2011, the eighth in Cesme, Turkey, September 2013, the ninth in Rhodes, Greece, June 2015, the tenth in Napoli-Italy, September 2017, and the eleventh in Tenerife, Spain, June 2019.
The symposium has grown over the years, becoming an important conference in combustion. The quality of many of the accepted papers is considered to be within the top published papers in most combustion journals. The objective of the conference is to give combustion scientists, particularly engineers and students from the Mediterranean area, the opportunity to get together for the dissemination of state-of-the-art advances in combustion research and to enhance future collaborative research activities between scientists from different geographic areas. All topics and all the scientific/technological approaches in the combustion field are pertinent to this
The organizing committee and the colloquia co-chairs are composed of international experts in various disciplines of combustion.
The technical program will consist of invited lectures by eminent specialists from all over the world, oral presentation of the contributed papers and posters of the work-in-progress. A set of contributed papers will be selected for post-conference publication in well-known combustion journals as it was for the previous symposia.
The symposium is structured so as to maximize contact and interactions and includes an interesting social program.
