Event description

Description

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.

The #IFRF2018 Conference is sponsored by Greens Combustion Limited, John Zink Hamworthy and Zeeco. Read more about our sponsors here.

Topics for discussion

As indicated above, 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.).

Call for Abstracts

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 listed 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 31 December 2017. Successful authors will be notified by the end of January 2018.

Who should attend

IFRF 2018 Conference aims to bring together industry and academic representatives from across the sector. The event is open to all - members and non-members of IFRF - with members receiving a special discounted price. We also offer a discount for students.

Conference structure

This two-day Conference will offer a combination of Plenary Sessions (with invited keynote speakers and other activities), Parallel Technical Sessions related to major topics, a Poster Session and a Sponsors Exhibition throughout the event. A Gala Dinner will be held on the evening of 30 May to celebrate the 70th (Platinum) Anniversary of IFRF at ‘Magna’ (a themed venue in an old steel mill). A reunion for the ‘Investigators Club’ (past IFRF resident / visiting ‘Investigators’) will also be organised for the evening before the start of the Conference.

Plenary Sessions: Invited keynote speakers from around the world will ‘set the scene’ for the Conference and its various sessions, provide a ‘retrospective’ of our 70-year history, look forward to what we aim to do in the future and to launch our new initiatives.

Parallel Technical Sessions: Oral presentations selected as a result of the Call for Abstracts, organised to follow a number of parallel, topic-based strands, will each have a 20-minute presentation and a 10-minute Q&A.

Poster Session: Delegates, particularly post-graduate students, not giving oral presentations may present and discuss their ‘work-in-progress’ in poster format in a dedicated session.

Sponsors Exhibition: Throughout the Conference, Sponsors will have the opportunity to showcase their products/services to Delegates. Please contact administration@ifrf.net for the Sponsorship Prospectus.
