The CCD chosen for 37th Combustion SymposiumThe Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) has announced it has been chosen to be the venue for the 37th International Symposium on Combustion in 2018.
The bid was secured through the combined efforts of researchers from the National University of Ireland, Galway, the University of Limerick, the University of Ulster, Keynote PCO and The CCD. They were up against bids from London and Ankara.
The 6-day meeting is expected to attract 1,600 experts. They specialise in all aspects of clean, efficient energy, fire safety, power generation and propulsion technologies. The voting Board members were impressed with the amenities and facilities offered by Dublin and The CCD, as well as by the scientific stature of the local organising committee.
The Irish Section of the Combustion Institute will host the Symposium, having secured very strong support, both financial and motivational, from government agencies, including Fáilte Ireland and Science Foundation Ireland – the latter through an Exceptional Conference Award.
Keynote PCO worked with the Irish committee to secure this important international conference. ‘We’re delighted that the Combustion Institute has recognised the quality of research in Ireland, as well as the benefits of Dublin as a conference destination. We look forward to a great meeting here in Ireland’, says Dr Noel Mitchell, Managing Director of Keynote PCO.
Adrienne Clarke, Head of Conference Sales at The CCD, adds, ‘We are thrilled to be chosen as the venue for such a prestigious conference and look forward to welcoming everyone to The CCD in July 2018’.
