The International Workshop on Detonation for Propulsion 2015 (IWDP 2015) was held successfully in College of Engineering (COE) during August 26-29, organized by Center for Combustion and Propulsion in PKU, and sponsored by State Key Laboratory of Turbulence and Complex Systems, State Key Laboratory of Explosion Science and Technology, and Department of Mechanics and Engineering Science of COE. Jian-Ping Wang, Professor of Department of Mechanics and Engineering Science in COE and Director of Center for Combustion and Propulsion, chaired the opening ceremony, panel discussion and closing ceremony.

Detonation for propulsion is a new direction of power for aeronautics and astronautics and draws attention from many countries across the world. The International Workshop on Detonation for Propulsion is an annual international workshop devoted to the discussion of the recent researches and developments of detonation for propulsion. The series have been held 5 times, Bourges and Pusan 2011, Tsukuba 2012, Tainan 2013 and Warsaw 2014.

On the opening ceremony, Professor Changgen Feng, Vice Chairman of China Association for Science and Technology, and Professor Dingguo Xia, Deputy Dean of COE, delivered their welcome messages, expressing the best wishes for IWDP 2015.
