Program - Churchill Memorial Symposium


Professor Stuart W. Churchill Memorial Symposium:
Advances in Transport Phenomena & Bridging Heat and Mass Transfer

This Symposium is organized in honor and memory of the late Professor Stuart W. Churchill, NAE, AIChE Fellow, and to celebrate his life, legacy, and the many years of service and contributions in combustion, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics, which have bridged research in both chemical and mechanical engineering applications. Papers and presentations are invited as technical contributions that address current research (experimental and theoretical or computational), as well as state-of-the-art in the broad areas of transport phenomena, and preferably relevant and aligned to (though not limited to) the work of Professor Churchill. These would cover the spectrum of fundamental and applied work in both chemical and mechanical engineering. Moreover, biographical papers and presentations are also solicited. Besides the submitted papers and presentations, this symposium will also provide a forum for selective invited presentations and keynotes. A selection of papers from the invited and submitted presentations are envisaged to be published, post-conference, in either a dedicated festschrift or in special issues of ASME and AIChE journals.
