CET Research Day VI

4 November 2016

Belair Park Country Club

09:15- 19:30

The Research Day is open to CET members and invited guests only. Attendance at the forum is compulsory for PhD students and post-doctoral researchers.


The objectives for the CET Research Day are:

  1. To foster innovation and quality: To promote the development of innovative and high quality research, spanning basic research, of practical relevance, to the development of new technology with potential to increase the penetration of clean energy systems;
  2. To inform research priorities: To engage the members in refining research priorities and future directions in research and technology development;
  3. To foster multi-disciplinary research: To foster interaction between members with different expertise and background with a view to harnessing different capabilities and promoting cross- fertilisation of ideas;
  4. To foster discussion and new interactions between researchers: To prioritise time for discussion and the development of new ideas, and provide opportunity for follow-up discussions between members throughout the year;
  5. To provide high level exposure for post-graduate students and post-doctoral researchers: To broaden the understanding of post-graduate students and increase their capacity to develop their own questions and ideas;
  6. To recognise significant contributions of members: To award prizes for outstanding contributions to the CET and its objectives;
  7. To strengthen our team spirit: To engender pride in our research activities and to promote social interactions where team members can interact informally.

Registration is required and can be done through Eventbrite.

Past Events

3rd International Sooting Flame Workshop
30th - 31st July 2016, Seoul, Korea

An open forum for discussions and interaction

Delegates are invited to the second meeting of the International Sooting Flame Workshop, which will promote an ongoing, international collaboration between experimentalists and modellers. It will identify research priorities, coordinate research activities and establish a data-base of selected flames with soot that are suitable for model development and validation, while also being relevant to practical application. The workshop will address the formation, oxidation and emission of soot and its role in radiation and pollutant emissions from simplified flames of key classes of technology.

For information on the workshop, see our 2016 Workshop page.
