The International Colloquium on the Dynamics of Explosions and Reactive Systems (ICDERS) has been held every two years since its founding in 1967 by N. Manson, A.K. Oppenheim, and R. Soloukhin. The colloquium has been the premier international forum for the presentation of scientific contributions in the fields of explosions and unsteady combustion, where there is strong coupling between reaction and fluid mechanics. It is recognized by The Combustion Institute as a Specialists Meeting on the fluid dynamics of combustion.
The meeting encompasses and welcomes both basic and applied research. Specific examples of contributions and topics from previous years can be found by visiting the website of the Institute for the Dynamics of Explosions and Reactive Systems (IDERS), http://www.icders.org, which has links to websites of previous meetings.
Contributed presentations, in oral and poster sessions, plenary and special sessions will take place during the week-long Colloquium. Authors of papers presented at this meeting are encouraged to submit full-length versions to one of these journals: Combustion Science and Technology, Combustion Theory and Modeling, and Shock Waves. Submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed according to individual journal standards but will be identified as ICDERS work individually or as part of a special issue.
