The Combustion Institute is pleased to announce the submissions website is now accepting one-page abstracts for Work-in-Progress Posters (WiPPs) for the CI’s 40th International Symposium – Emphasizing Energy Transition. WiPP authors can submit their abstracts to one of the 13 colloquium categories defined in the Call for Papers. Academic posters summarize a body of research in a visually engaging way that provides a clear, logical presentation of work. More information on how to prepare and submit a WiPP abstract can be found on the symposium website
