AFRC 2015 Industrial Combustion Symposium

September 9-11, 2015
Historic Fort Douglas Officers Club
University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah

In 1862 in the midst of the United States Civil War, Camp Douglas was established to keep an eye on supposed secessionist tendencies in the Utah Territory.  No worries, no secession and in 1878 Camp Douglas was upgraded to Fort Douglas and in due course to the glorious University of Utah that we find there today. As far as United States history goes, that’s about as good as it gets and about as far back as it goes in the West.  Above are pictures of a couple of the historic venues in which AFRC 2015 will be conducted as well as the University Guest House (which began its life housing the 2002 Winter Olympians) in which AFRC 2015 delegates will be accommodated.  The AFRC 2015 Organizing Committee cordially invite your participation!  To register click here
