Poster Foam Backing Boards (for both Regular and Work-in-Progress posters) will be 36 inches horizontal and 48 inches vertical which will mount nicely the recommended posters of A0 (84 cm x 120 cm).  They will be clipped to the foam backing so single sheet posters are preferable.

Brief Introduction to ICDERS

The International Colloquium on the Dynamics of Explosions and Reactive Systems (ICDERS) has been held every two years since its founding in 1967 by N. Manson, A.K. Oppenheim, and R. Soloukhin.  The colloquium has been the premier international forum for the presentation of scientific contributions in the fields of explosions and unsteady combustion.  The meeting provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of research primarily concerned with explosions and unsteady combustion events 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.
