Submit your papers or posters on all aspects of sustainability and use of fossil, synthetic and renewable fuels.

IASH is now accepting session abstracts for the 16th International Conference on Stability, Handling and Use of Liquid Fuels at the Hilton Long Beach in Long Beach, California September 8 – 12, 2019. This year’s conference features four days of technical sessions and a separate poster session. Technical presentations on new and innovative approaches to the definition, solution of fuel stability and handling problems are welcomed by February 18, 2019.

Key session aspects are stability, viability, unique properties and chemistry, carbon neutrality, handling and cleanliness control.  These may relate to any liquid fuels including but not limited to gasoline, jet, diesel, burner, and residual fuel oils; crude oils; synthetic fuels, reformulated fuels; and fuels or blend stocks derived from biological materials, tar sands, oil shale and coal. A commercial exposition will span throughout the length of the symposium.

TECHNICAL SESSIONS are considered but are not limited to the following topical areas:

Crude Slates and New Production Technologies

AVGAS, Gasoline, Diesel and Biodiesel

Fuel Contaminates Marine Fuels
Fuel Properties and Effects Fuel Additives
Fuel Testing and Test Methods Alternative Aviation Fuels
Fuel Production and Quality Control Microbiological
Fuel Supply Chain Storage, Handling, and Logistics Fuel Chemistry, Research and Development
Synthetic and Renewable Fuel Technologies  

Please note, the submitted abstracts will determine the final list of session topics.

Abstracts of approximately 250 words, in English, are due no later than February 18, 2019, for both technical papers and poster papers.  Please submit your abstract electronically to Darnette Holbert, IASH Administrator, via this Abstract Submission Form.  Papers based on original, previously unpublished research or studies are preferable, but not mandatory.   PowerPoint presentation drafts are due 30 days prior to the conference for review by the Conference Chair.
