Welcome to ICDERS 2015, Leeds, UK

On behalf of the ICDERS Programme Committee and the Leeds Host Committee, I welcome you to this web site. It should provide the information necessary for you to submit a paper, register for the Colloquium, arrange accommodation and plan your travel to Leeds. Information and links to places of interest are provided also.

The International Colloquium on the Dynamics of Explosions and Reactive Systems (ICDERS) has been held every two years since its founding in 1967. It has been the premier international forum for the presentation of scientific contributions in the fields of explosions and unsteady combustion, where there is strong coupling between reaction and fluid mechanics. It is held on alternate years from the International Combustion Symposium and is recognized by the Combustion Institute as a specialists meeting on the fluid dynamics of combustion.

We, at Leeds, are proud to be the hosts for the Colloquium. We are confident that a full, wide ranging and stimulating programme will be developed over the coming months and that Leeds will play host to an efficient and exciting programme of technical and social events for delegates and accompanying visitors.

We hope to see you in Leeds in August 2015


Malcolm Lawes (Host Chair)
