The IFRF 2018 Conference is the 19th conference organised by the International Flame Research Foundation since our foundation in 1948 and will take place in our 70th anniversary year.  It will be held at the excellent venue of Sheffield Town Hall, close to the headquarters of IFRF, and a world-renowned centre for steelmaking and high-temperature industries reliant on combustion and related processes.

The theme – ‘Clean, efficient and safe industrial combustion’ – echoes the objectives of IFRF and has direct relevance across a range of industrial sectors including power generation, iron / steel / aluminium production, oil & gas sector, refining & petrochemicals sector, glassmaking, ceramics production, district heating & cooling, cement production, lime and minerals processing, etc. As such, the content of the conference will be of interest to delegates from around the World.

Registration for the conference is now open! So head over to Eventbrite (here) and book your tickets today. However if you are also interested in submitting a paper please continue reading (and then go and book!).

Call for Abstracts

We aim to attract presentations from the power generation and process industries and the Conference Programme will be structured around these and IFRF’s key areas of interest (i.e. flame research, optimising heat transfer, fuels – standard and non-standard, incineration, environmental concerns, flares, safety, etc.).

IFRF is now seeking Abstracts (250 ± 50 words) for oral and poster papers for IFRF Conference 2018. The papers will need to focus on the topics highlighted above. Selected authors will be invited to submit their papers for peer review with a view to publication in a special edition of IFRF’s online Industrial Combustion Journal.

Please send your abstract as MS Word files (using this template) to administration@ifrf.net by 30 November 2017. Successful authors will be notified by the end of January 2018.
