The deadline for 2018 Combustion Institute-Summer Schools proposals are due no later than 31 March 2017. The Combustion Institute invites universities, CI Sections, and other qualified organizations to submit their proposals in accordance with the defined guidelines.

Formerly titled the International Combustion Institute Summer Schools (ICISS), the newly named Combustion Institute-Summer School (CI-SS) embodies the same mission and goals. The CI-SS initiative promotes 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 summer schools to harmonize and promote the global growth of combustion science and technologies.

CI-SS programs are conducted in a diverse array of countries around the world. Each school serves to promote international scientific participation and the global growth of combustion science. Summer schools address a multitude of combustion fields i.e., sustainable energy supply, the impact on our environment, safe and cheap transportation, fire suppression, and others. These education initiatives correspond to societal needs and benefit the public.

More information about the background, objectives, proposal formatting, and the selection process for CI-SS programs are presented in the guidelines.

The proven success of the CI-SS initiative further enhances our international community’s outreach activities to foster a new generation of combustion scientists and practitioners. Questions regarding the CI-SS initiative may be directed to:
