Events held by sections and affiliates of The Combustion Institute assist in our objective to promote and disseminate research activities and information in all areas of combustion science and technology. We are pleased to showcase the successes and contributions of our members among our international community of combustion scientists and practitioners.

The 2021 Tsinghua-Princeton-CI Summer School on Combustion took place virtually from 11-17 July 2021. 304 delegates from 18 countries attended, including undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, university professors and industrial engineers. The five-day program consisted of lectures offered by Professors Sébastien Candel, Mark Linne, Alison Tomlin, and Heinz Pitsch. Topics covered the fundamental knowledge on combustion physics and chemistry as well as laser diagnostics and unsteady combustion behaviors.

Hardcopies of lecture notes, T-shirts, and other related supplies were shipped to all attendees with electronic copies of lecture materials also provided. Due to the time differences between the lecturers (all in Europe) and the students in larger Pacific areas, enrichment activities like poster presentation, career panel, and those that have to be held off-line including academic salon, campus tour and lab tour were eventually not included in this year’s program.

Overall, this year’s lectures very well received by the participants and the interactions between lecturers and students were well participated. Below are some photos taken during the events.

The Combustion Institute is proud to support CI affiliated events. Visit our Events Calendar to learn more about upcoming combustion science events hosted by CI Sections and other affiliated organizations.
