Final Preparation for Dublin

In just a few weeks over 1600 members of The Combustion Institute will be gathering in Dublin for the 37th International Symposium on Combustion. I am excited and looking forward to the exchange of research through oral and poster presentations. Renewing friendships, meeting new members and networking are a distinctive part of  these biennial meetings.

As you make your final preparations, I encourage you to review the following items.

  1. Oral Presentation Instructions: You are not able to load your presentation in the session room. Visit the Presenter Ready Room the day before your talk and technicians will help you load your slides.
  2. Work-in-Progress Poster Presentation Instructions: Review the drop-off and pick-up instructions and check label details on your poster.
  3. Symposium App: Download the new App and the schedule and abstracts before you arrive in Dublin! Set reminders so you do not miss a presentation. Reach out to Corresponding Authors with questions. Oral and WiPP Programs are also available on the website.

For those of you unable to attend, watch for annoucements to be posted during the Symposium on the various medalists and awardees.

CI Announcements and Events

Elsevier Publication Changes

The Combustion Institute and Elsevier have been working together as changes in technology and publishing have identified areas for improvement. We are pleased to announce that effectively immediately, there is a new pricing arrangement for color figures in both  Combustion and Flame and the  Proceedings of The Combustion Institute. The old pricing was a per page price of US $974, no matter how many figures were on the page. The new pricing structure will charge authors a fee of US $333 per figure that is printed in color. Online color will continue at no additional fee. Additionally, CI staff will continue to work with authors publishing in PROCI to identify their color requirements while providing the best possible pricing.
