The Federation of European Sections



Welcome to the website of the Federation of the European Sections of the Combustion Institute.

The Federation of the European Sections of the Combustion Institute was founded in 2001. It is presently chaired by Terese Løvås (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway).

Its major aim is to provide a forum for knowledge transfer in the field of combustion and related scientific and technological disciplines among academic researchers, graduate students and combustion professionals and thus, to ultimately, promote combustion research in Europe. This is accomplished mainly through the organization of european combustion meetings held on a regular basis (ECM).


The Combustion Institute, founded in 1954, is an international non-profit, scientific and engineering society whose sole purpose is to promote research in the field of combustion science. This is done through the dissemination of research findings at regional and national meetings, the biennial international symposia, through the publication of the symposium proceedings and the Institute's journal, Combustion and Flame. The Institute serves as the parent organization to national sections organized in many countries, numbering 29 as of 2004.

Seventeenth International Conference on Numerical Combustion

May 6-8, 2019 Aachen, Germany

Current advances in numerical combustion continue to have a great impact on combustion science. These advances allow to address engineering problems with increasing complexity in a wide range of applications such as propulsion and transportation, power generation, environment, waste disposal, safety (fires, explosions), or material synthesis.

At the forthcoming Seventeenth International Conference on Numerical Combustion, ongoing research and current advances in the field of numerical combustion will be presented. These include the integration of theory, modeling and numerical implementation to perform high-fidelity simulations of fundamental combustion physics and technological applications. The goal of the conference is to be a premier venue for researchers and industry practitioners to share new ideas, research results, and development experiences in these fields.
