CANCELLED - The 2020 Spring Technical Meeting of the Central States Section of The Combustion Institute

The 2020 Spring Technical Meeting of the Central States Section of The Combustion Institute has been cancelled. This decision was made after considering several elements of current and projected activities and actions taken by the US federal government, national laboratories, corporations, universities, and municipalities in response to COVID-19. The cancellation of the Spring Technical Meeting also necessarily means the Combustion Art Competition and the Undergraduate Research Competition have both been cancelled.

In spite of the cancellation of this meeting, the organizers will continue to do the following:

  1. Assemble an electronic collection of those papers that would have been presented at the 2020 Spring Technical Meeting of the Central States Section of The Combustion Institute. This collection of papers will be made available via the Central States Section website using a special web link and password (similar to what is done now for distributing paper proceedings for when a Central States Section meeting is held). This weblink and password will be distributed to all authors submitting a paper and all members of the Central States Section at no cost. As in past practice of the Central States Section, authors retain copyright of their papers and are free to publish their papers elsewhere.

    The deadline for papers is extended to June 2, 2020. The intent is to make this electronic collection of papers available sometime early summer.
  2. Explore the possibility of holding a technical meeting in Fall 2020 where authors could present what would have been presented at the Spring 2020 meeting, or new / modified content. More information on this subject should follow in the next few months.
  3. Explore the possibility of holding our Section Business Meeting either virtually or in-person at a possibly-scheduled Fall technical meeting (see #2). More information on this subject should follow in the next few months.

You will receive a full refund on your registration within the next few weeks, if you’ve already registered. Likewise, the designated conference hotel with room blocks will cancel your reservation without penalty (but, you must contact the hotel yourself to cancel this reservation).
