35th International Symposium on Combustion

San Francisco is the location of the 35th International Symposium on Combustion.  The City and the Bay Area is one of the most exciting destinations in the world, with world-class views, food, museums, universities and research institutions, and diverse people and neighborhoods.  The Symposium will be held at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco.  The hotel is situated right on the Embarcadero waterfront, where you will enjoy immediate access to both the Financial District and the city's most famous attractions.  You will find the historic Ferry Building on one side of the hotel, the ferry to Alcatraz on the other, and stunning views all around.  There are many options for shopping, food, and sights within walking distance of the meeting site.  You may also choose to wander through Chinatown to Fisherman's Wharf, shop in Union Square or board the cable cars for a riding tour of the city.  The Hyatt Regency San Francisco offers stunning views, impeccable service and Four-Diamond amenities.  A breathtaking 17-story atrium lobby leads guests to our elegant ballrooms, meeting rooms and board rooms.

The combination of cold ocean water and high heat of the California mainland create the city’s characteristic fog that can cover the entire city all day during the spring and early summer.  The fog is less pronounced in the eastern neighborhoods, in the late summer, and during the fall, which are the warmest months of the year.  

The dry period of May – October is mild to warm, with average high temperatures of 64 – 70° F (13 -18° C) and lows of 46 – 51° F (8 -11° C).  So,
remember to bring a jacket because the mornings and evenings are typically chilly.
