The Combustion Institute is thrilled to announce the appointment of Timothy C. Lieuwen and Fei Qi as the Program Co-Chairs (PCCs) for the 38th International Symposium on Combustion in Adelaide, Australia. The PCCs set the tone for the technical program for each symposium, including the selection of invited speakers and oversight of combustion colloquia.

Prof. Timothy C. Lieuwen is the David S. Lewis, Jr., Professor in the School of Aerospace Engineering and the Executive Director of the Strategic Energy Institute at Georgia Tech, United States. He finds his work in the field of combustion to be deeply satisfying as it spans the breadth from basic, fundamental research to applied technology – technology that has a significant influence on the quality of life and environment for the entire planet. He was elected to The Combustion Institute Board of Directors in 2018. He has also served as an Associate Editor for The Proceedings of The Combustion Institute.

Fei Qi is Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Shangai Jiao Tong University, China. His interests include theoretical and kinetic modeling study on combustion (pyrolysis, oxidation and flame), pyrolysis kinetics of biomass and coal, and combustion related air pollutants. He is a member of The Combustion Institute Board of Directors and currently serves as the Secretary of Sectional Affairs. He is currently an Associate Editor for The Proceedings of The Combustion Institute and has served on the editorial board of Combustion and Flame.

The 38th Symposium will convene in Adelaide, Australia from Sunday, 12 July through Friday, 17 July 2020. The biennial symposium provides a scientific venue for sharing ideas and experiences on the development and applications of combustion science.
