6th International Workshop

Welcome to the website for the 6th International Workshop on Model Reduction in Reactive Flow (IWMRRF). The meeting will be held July 11-14, 2017 on the campus of Princeton University in Princeton, NJ.

pu-logo-retinaInformation about registration, accommodation, travel, venue, and program are available on this site. Any questions about the conference arrangements should be addressed to the local co-hosts: Prof. Yiguang Ju and Dr. Temistocle Grenga.


This biennial workshop brings together international experts on the theory and application of model reduction techniques in reactive flows. The objective of the workshop is to promote discussion and exchange of information among experts in this technical area, thereby promoting the advance of knowledge as regards the development of effective methods for model reduction in reacting flow.

  • Theoretical Foundations  |  Theoretical foundations of model reduction techniques, including definitions of slow, fast, invariant manifolds and related subjects.
  • Mechanism Simplification  |  Chemical kinetic mechanisms simplification.
    Model Reduction in ODE’s, DAE’s and PDE’s
  • Computational Tools  |  Computational tools to compute and analyze reacting flows.
  • Applied Engineering

A block of rooms has been set aside for conference attendees at the Nassau Inn at the cost of $ 145 per night plus taxes. Please reserve using this link: https://reservations.travelclick.com/13522?groupID=1765264&hotelID=13522#/guestsandrooms

The hotel is within walking distance to Princeton University Campus.


Transportation is provided between the hotel and the conference site, as well as from the visitor parking lot.

The shuttle bus schedule will be shortly updated.

Additional details will be included in your registration materials.


The conference will be held on the campus of Princeton University, which is conveniently located approximately halfway between New York and Philadelphia.

By Air

The closest major airport is Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), which is connected directly by NJ TRANSIT trains along the Northeast Corridor line.  Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is nearly as close but requires two train transfers in Philadelphia and Trenton.  Detailed directions via commuter train are provided below.

Limited flights are also available into the smaller Trenton-Mercer Airport (TTN), but the airport is not served by train.

Other New York area airports (LGA and JFK) are not recommended due to having to transit across New York.

By Commuter Train

The greater Princeton area is served by the Princeton Junction Station on the NJ TRANSIT Northeast Corridor line.  The Hyatt Regency Princeton is accessible by a complementary hotel shuttle that requires advance reservation and should be arranged directly with the hotel.  Princeton University and downtown Princeton are served by the Princeton Station, requiring a transfer to the NJ TRANSIT “Dinky” shuttle at the Princeton Junction Station.

Points North: The northern terminus of the NJ TRANSIT Northeast Corridor line is New York Penn Station with stops at Newark Penn Station and Newark Airport Rail Station.  Check the NJ TRANSIT website for a detailed schedule and map.

Points South: The southern terminus of the NJ TRANSIT Northeast Corridor line is the Trenton Transit Center.  Connections are available to SEPTA.  From Philadelphia International Airport, take the SEPTA Airport Line to the 30th Street Station and connect to the Trenton Line to the Trenton Transit Center. Check the SEPTA and NJ TRANSIT websites for detailed schedules and maps.

By Regional Train

The AMTRAK Acela and Northeast Regional lines both provide access to the Philadelphia-New York Corridor.  Every Acela train stops at both New York Penn Station and Newark Penn Station with connections to NJ TRANSIT.  Most Northeast Regional trains also stop at the Trenton Transit Center, and a few stop directly at Princeton Junction.

By Car

Princeton University is conveniently located just off of U.S. Route 1. Free daily parking is available near the conference site in Lot 21, indicated on the map on the Venue page.  Transportation between the parking lot and the conference venue is provided by the campus bus network TigerTransit.


For emergencies, the University Department of Public Safety can be reached by dialing 911 from a campus phone or 609-258-3333 from a cell phone.  In non-emergencies, the Department of Public Safety can be reached at 609-258-1000.

Princeton University maintains a website for any Emergency Alerts.
