Contributed presentations, in oral and poster sessions, plenary and special sessions will take place during the week-long Colloquium. It is ICDERS policy to encourage intensive discussions on basic and applied research of fundamental and timely topics. A digital version of the Proceedings of the Colloquium, which includes the extended abstracts of presented papers, will be distributed to participants at the meeting. The Proceedings will also be available through the IDERS website. Authors of papers presented at this meeting are encouraged to submit full-length versions to one of these journals: Combustion Science and Technology, Combustion Theory and Modeling, and Shock Waves. Submitted manuscripts will be peer reviewed according to individual journal standards but will be identified as ICDERS work individually or as part of a special issue.

Submissions are encouraged on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Detonation dynamics, structure, initiation and limits
  • Dynamics of deflagration waves
  • Gas and dust explosions
  • Diagnostics for reactive systems
  • Numerical methods for reacting flows
  • Nonlinear analysis and reactive analogues
  • Ignition phenomena
  • Reactive dynamics of energetic materials
  • Multiphase reactive dynamics
  • Relaxation phenomena in shock waves
  • Propulsion applications of detonations and high-speed flames
  • Turbulence in compressible reacting flows
  • Chemical reaction kinetics and reaction dynamics
  • Reaction wave instabilities and quenching
  • Astrophysical deflagrations and detonations
  • Safety relevant ignition processes
  • Fire dynamics
  • Industrial safety applications
  • Dynamics of premixed and non-premixed flames
