We would like to invite you to participate and to present a talk on a topic of your choice at the International Conference on Combustion Physics and Chemistry in to be held in Samara, Russia, on July 24-28, 2018. In 2017-2019, Samara National Research University has been awarded a megagrant from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation to create a laboratory for the purpose of development of physically justified models of combustion on the basis of new spectroscopic and kinetic data on chemical processes in combustion and flame characteristics. The objectives of this project include measurements and calculations of kinetic constants for the processes involved in initiation and sustainment of combustion, formation and destruction of pollutants (PAH, nitrogen oxides) and active species (radicals, intermediates, excited atoms and molecules, ions) and development of gas-dynamic and kinetic models of combustion based on physically proved rate constants and their validation on laminar model flames. Within this laboratory, a pyrolytic microreactor is being created with universal mass spectrometric detection of products of chemical reactions and with distinction of different isomers based on their photoionization cross sections. The reactor is planned to be commissioned in the second half of 2018. To facilitate the development of the new laboratory and to promote scientific exchange and collaboration between combustion chemists and physicists around the world, we are organizing the International Conference on Combustion Physics and Chemistry.

The main topics of this conference include

- Fundamental physical-chemical processes in combustion.

- Quantum chemical studies of potential energy surfaces of chemical reactions in flames.

- Kinetics and dynamics of elementary processes.

- Mathematical modeling of processes in combustion.

- Laser and optical diagnostics of processes in combustion.

- Chemical, plasma, and laser initiation of combustion.

- Formation and destruction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), soot, graphene, and carbonaceous nanoparticles.

- Chromatography and measurement methods.

- Ecological issues related to combustion.

The Conference will be held in Samara, one of the host cities of the FIFA World Cup 2018, shortly after the completion of the World Cup games and in the week preceding the International Combustion Symposium in Ireland. The Conference will feature invited (35 min + 5 min discussion) as well as contributed talks (15 min + 5 min discussion) and poster presentations.
