The Combustion Institute-Indian Section (CIIS) is pleased to announce and invite you to participate in the 26th National Conference on Internal Combustion Engines and Combustion (NCICEC 2019) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at National Institute of Technology Kurukshetra during November 1 – 4, 2019. The goal of NCICEC 2019 is to provide a forum for scholars from academia, industry and research institutions to present advances and current challenges in combustion science. It will foster an environment conducive to exchanging ideas and information in the community involved in research and development works in the field of IC Engines, combustion and propulsion.
I am delighted to record that National Institute of Technology
Kurukshetra is organizing the 26th National Conference on IC
Engines and Combustion (NCICEC 2019) under the aegis of the
Combustion Institute- Indian Section (CIIS). The Combustion
research institute has been working with exciting domains of
combustion science including development of new energy sources
producing a low carbon footprint; methanol as cooking fuel in
households as well as transport fuel etc. This requires only
minor modiﬁcations to existing engines and fuel-delivery
infrastructure. Combustion scientists are also developing ways
to generate electricity from carbon-free fuels such as hydrogen,
or from fuels with a low carbon content such as syngas and
suppression of ﬁre.
This conference will provide a unique forum for engineers and scientists from academic/research laboratories/ institutions/ industries from India to network and share technical information on new developments in the ﬁeld of IC Engines, Combustion and Propulsion. I congratulate the Institute for this excellent initiative and wish them all success for this endeavor.
It gives me immense pride to share that NIT Kurukshetra is
organizing the 26th National Conference on IC Engines and
Combustion (NCICEC 2019) from 1st to 4th November, 2019 under
the auspices of The Combustion Institute: Indian section. The
fundamental research on combustion phenomenon plays a very
important role in the ﬁeld of missiles, strategic systems and
hypersonic propulsion as well as to save planet earth from
pollution. The Conference would provide an ideal platform to all
the participating professionals to deliberate on path breaking
and innovative ideas for the beneﬁt of the combustion
fraternity. It will inspire professionals, academicians and
scientists from various labs and organizations to collaborate
and share their knowledge to build future systems. More than 150
distinguished delegates from all over India are expected to give
their contributions in the ﬁeld of combustion.This attempt at
the sustainable development in the area of combustion is
deﬁnitely one of its kind and would surely propel us a step
closer to a clean and sustainable future.
I welcome you all the speakers and participants and wish NCICEC 2019 a grand success.
The Combustion Institute-Indian Section (CIIS) is affiliated to
its parent international body The Combustion Institute situated
in Pittsburgh, USA which is a prestigious, non-proﬁt
professional body, incorporated in the state of Delaware on the
July 1, 1954.
The Combustion Institute (Indian Section) is a professional body registered at Hyderabad. It commenced activities way back in 1974 through a National Symposium in Combustion at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi. The same has been continued in the form of a biennial National Conference wherein the engineers and the scientists engaged in the research work in the domain of IC Engines and Combustion are provided a network platform for sharing their research contributions. Continuing the series, the 25th NCICEC was held at NIT Surathkal during December 15-17, 2017 and 26th NCICEC is proposed to be held at NIT Kurukshetra during November 1-4, 2019. The Combustion Institute: Indian Section oversees the technical and organizational aspects of this and other technical events in the country.
