The U.S. National Combustion Meeting has been organized biennially since 1999 by the joint US Sections of The Combustion Institute (the Western States Section or WSSCI, the Eastern States Section or ESSCI, and the Central States Section or CSSCI). The 13th U.S. National Combustion Meeting will be held at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas with the CSSCI serving as hosts. We expect more than 600 students, scientists, and engineers at this meeting, representing the leading edge of combustion research in the United States. The technical program will begin on Monday morning, 20 March and will end mid-day on Wednesday, 22 March.
Nominations for the 3rd bi-annual U.S. Early Career Combustion Investigator Award are now being accepted.
This award will recognize the contributions of an early career combustion investigator based upon their research, potential for future leadership in the field, and service to the combustion community. In the addition to academia, nominations of candidates within industry and government are strongly encouraged. The awardee must be willing and available to give the Early Career Investigator Plenary at the 13th U.S. National Combustion Meeting. The awardee will receive free registration to the meeting as well as an honorarium of $2,000. Details of the nomination process are available here.
The Outreach committee of the Central States Section of the Combustion Institute (CSSCI) invites you to submit your undergraduate research in combustion to the U.S. National Combustion Meeting (USNCM) Undergraduate Student Research Competition. The competition is open to sophomore, junior, and senior undergraduate student researchers. The top three entries will receive a cash award of $250 and will deliver a presentation at the 2023 USNCM, March 19-22, 2023, Texas A&M University, College Station. Conference registration fees will be waived for one student presenter from each of the winning entries. More information is available here.
Eligible entries include (but are not limited to): images (photographs or computer-generated), paintings, drawings, sketches, sculptures, and videos of combustion or combustion-related phenomena. Rearrangement, assembly, or modification of combustion images into an art-form is appropriate and encouraged. Submission indicates your permission for your artwork to be displayed on the CSSCI website.
To enter the competition, please submit a high-resolution image or video to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 March 2023. Please include title, artists and affiliations, and a brief explanation of your submission. Voting is by title, so a succinct, catchy title is suggested. To participate, at least one of the artists is required to be a registered attendee at the meeting. PDF and Word Document versions of the full guidelines can be found on this event page.
