The Combustion Institute-Summer Schools initiative was established to promote scientific education that corresponds with the combustion-related needs of society. Student participants meet world-leading scientists and work to build their own international network. The Combustion Institute, in cooperation with host organizations around the world, assemble CI-SS programs to harmonize and promote the global growth of combustion science and technologies.

Proposals for 2018 Combustion Institute-Summer Schools are due no later than 31 March 2017. The Combustion Institute invites universities, sections, and other qualified organizations to submit their proposals in accordance with the defined guidelines. The proven success of the CI-SS initiative continues to foster the next generation of combustion scientists.
