INFUB-12 will be held on 14th-17th April 2020, in Porto, Portugal.

INFUB-12 is the latest in a series of Conferences held in Portugal since 1988. INFUB events have been attended by delegates from over 30 countries and around 90 papers have been presented at each event. In particular, the INFUB Conferences have attracted participants from industry and the papers considered include fundamental research as well as topics of a more practical and applied nature.

The main objective of the Conference is to provide an improved up-to-date understanding of the fundamentals, principles and practices associated with the design and operation of industrial furnaces and boilers and, from a broader perspective, of industrial systems and processes generating, transforming or using thermal energy from combustion.
