The 11th European Conference on Coal Research and Its Application was held at the University of Sheffield between 5th and 7th September 2016 and is organised by the Coal Research Forum together with the RELCOM project coordinator.

The Coal Research Forum was formed in 1989 to encourage, promote and co-ordinate basic research on coal, coal characterisation, coal products and coal utilisation. Particular emphasis is given to the promotion and co-ordination of contact between academia and industry, and the assessment and coordination of resources and needs concerned with coal utilisation and conversion.

One of the conference sessions was dedicated to the RELCOM project with 12 presentations and a poster session. All partners of the RELCOM project attended the conference in order to present the objectives, evolution and conclusions of the project.

Incoming IFRF Director Philip Sharman, former Director Leo Tognotti, Interim Director Neil Fricker and former Investigator Jarek Hercog made four presentations during an IFRF session.
