The 2011 Australian Combustion Symposium was hosted at Shoal Bay, NSW by the Discipline of Chemical Engineering and the Priority Research Centre for Energy of The University of Newcastle. This biennial meeting is the top summit of the Australian and New Zealand’s combustion community and brings together combustion scientists and young researchers from academia and industry, providing a forum for discussion on fundamental and applied combustion science. Congratulations to Ming for adding another prestigious award to the UWA Centre for Energy!
