MCS11 is the eleventh symposium in a series on combustion and related topics, the Mediterranean Combustion Symposia, held by the scientific communities from countries around the Mediterranean.

Previous symposia were:

  • MCS1: Antalya, Turkey, June 1999
  • MCS2: Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, January 2002,
  • MCS3: Marrakech, Morocco, June 2003
  • MCS4: Lisbon, Portugal, October 2005
  • MCS5: Monastir, Tunisia, September 2007
  • MCS6: Corsica, France, June 2009
  • MCS7: Chia Laguna, Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy, September 2011
  • MCS8: Cesme, Turkey, September 2013
  • MCS9: Rhodes, Greece, June 2015
  • MCS10: Naples, Italy, September 2017

The Symposium has grown over the years, becoming an important conference on Combustion. The quality of many of the accepted papers is considered to be the same as in the top combustion journals.

The objective of MCS11 and its predecessors is to give combustion scientists, particularly engineers and students from the Mediterranean area, the opportunity to get together for the dissemination of state-of-the-art advances in combustion research and to enhance future collaborative research activities between scientists from different geographic areas. All topics and all the scientific/technological approaches in the combustion field are pertinent to this Symposium. The technical programme will consist of invited lectures by eminent specialists from all over the world, oral presentation of the contributed papers and posters of the work-in-progress.

The Symposium is structured so as to maximise contact and interactions and includes an interesting social programme.
