AFCC 2021

The AFCC 2021 aims at continuing the very successful series of conferences on Active Flow Control (AFC) in the years 2006 and 2010, followed by Active Flow and Combustion Control (AFCC) in 2014 and 2018. By assembling experts in all areas of active flow and combustion control, the latest achievements in these fields are presented. Special focus lies on closed-loop control applied on new machine concepts.

Topics are dealing with combustion concepts like pulsed detonation and other forms of constant volume combustion as well as unsteady aerodynamics including unsteady cooling concepts. Methodologies are comprising experimental and numerical methods as well as model reduction techniques. This conference is supported by the collaborative research center SFB 1029 on „Substantial efficiency increase in gas turbines through direct use of coupled unsteady combustion and flow dynamics“, funded by the DFG (German Research Foundation).

General Information

The AFCC 2021 will take place September 28-29, 2021 as online conference.

The conference will feature solely invited talks, without parallel sessions. Due to the pandemic situation, the conference will be held virtually with pre-recorded presentations, which will be discussed via video-conferencing during the above-mentioned days.

Additional information on the online conference platform will be provided on this website as soon as possible.

All contributions will be made available in an accessible conference data base. As in the previous conferences, the most important papers are going to be published in a book in the Springer series „Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics and Multidisciplinary Design (NNFM)“.

The conference is free of charge for all participants.

Information for Authors


• September 1st, 2021: Final submission of full papers
• September 1st, 2021: Submisson of pre-recorded presentations

You will find Springer’s guidelines and templates for paper preparation as well as technical instructions here.



We also require a final pdf of each paper created and checked by the authors. At the latest by the final submission deadline, we would like you to upload the Permission Request and Consent-to-Publish forms, the last of which has to be signed by the authors of each paper, at least by the corresponding author.

These documents can be downloaded from the Download page.

Here you can find more information about SpingerNature´s poceedings. Also, it is strongly recommend that all paper authors include their affiliation and e-mail address in their manuscript. Their e-mail addresses (also published in the chapters) will be used by SpringerNature to provide authors with a personal „MySpinger account“ where they can download a free copy of the eBook.

Access to the Springer ebook containing all paper contributions will be sent to all registered participants by email after the conference.
