The focus this week in Livorno is on preparation for the Clean Industrial Fuel Combustion course being held next week at the ENEL facility.  We are delighted to have attracted some 25 delegates from across Europe and are expecting an exciting week.  If you don’t know about it and think you could organize to be with us for the opening on Monday 8 September, rush to the above link and register now!

Other IFRF events planned for this quarter include two TOTeMs in November (Pisa) and December (Munich), the launch of CFD and SFDB discussion forums on the IFRF website and further development of these initiatives, and the publication of two long awaited research reports.

TOTeM details will be inserted into the Events Calendar as soon as they become available and Members are invited to watch the MNM for updates on these as well as on the Munich Workshops.

We recommend that Members take a good look at the IFRF Events Calendar for information about other upcoming events worldwide.  There have been two new additions during the break.  These are the International Gas Research Conference 2008 which will be held in Paris, and the Italian National Committee’s one-day workshop on Diagnostics, Modelling and Emissions Control which was postponed in June and will now happen in November.

Meanwhile, international events coming up within this month include the 7th European Conference on Coal Research and its applications (Cardiff University, Wales), the 6th International Seminar on Flame Structure (Vrije Universiteit, Brussels, Belgium), the BFRC/IOP One day meeting Alternative fuels and combustion strategies for internal combustion engines (Cambridge University), and a conference in the Canadian Rockies, Impacts of Fuel Quality on Power Production.  The deadline for applications for Marie Curie Fellowship opportunuty is 30 September.

More news next week.
