The advent of jet and rocket propulsion in our present age has brought the problems of combustion right into the foreground. While much is known, still more theoretical and experimental research is necessary to extend our knowledge of combustion phenomena in combustion chambers and rockets. This impelled the Advisory Group for Aeronautical Research and Development (AGARD) of N.A.T.O. to collect all the latest information and results of research in the field of combustion science by forming a Combustion Panel and by inviting competent experts from Europe and the United States to discuss some of the most acute problems, and thus inspire interest and suggest directions for further research. The first Colloquium was held in December 1952 in Rome, and a further and more systematic one in December 1953 in Cambridge.
