The VIII School of Combustion, promoted by Rede Nacional de Combustão (RNC) will take place in Fortaleza in October, 2021.


The event will gather students, researchers, professors, and industry professionals to stimulate the development of combustion science, biofuels, and conversion technologies. It also connects fundamental studies with advanced modeling applications.

It aims to deal with aspects that vary from fundamental to innovators in combustion (mainly related to biofuels and conversion technologies in the scope of engines, gasification, and pyrolysis) through training offered by Brazilian and foreign professionals with extensive experience not only in the academic area but also in the industrial area. Also, it will address fundamental aspects of the science of combustion and their interactions with other phenomena of interest (i.e. turbulence, multiphase flows, radiative heat transfer, among others).



The School of Combustion focus on education. Its online format includes courses, lectures, poster sessions, virtual rooms for integration activities – networking online with some local industries.

In this way, the 8th Brazilian Combustion School – virtual edition, in conjunction with International Combustion Institute Summer School (CI-SS), will be hosted by the Brazilian Section of the Combustion Institute, being held on October 18 to 22, 2021.
