Cantera is an open-source suite of object-oriented software tools for problems involving kinetics, thermodynamics, and/or transport. Among other things, it can be used to:

This 1.5-day workshop affiliated with the 39th International Symposium on Combustion will bring together new and advanced users of Cantera, and introduce all to getting involved with Cantera development.

The workshop will begin on Friday afternoon with a session on advanced use of Cantera, and then Saturday morning will introduce basic use of Cantera. All workshop attendees are invited to join a code sprint and poster session on Saturday afternoon. See more detail on the Schedule page. Attendees can choose to attend the basic or advanced sessions, or both. You may also register for the poster session on Saturday afternoon without either of the tutorial sessions, if you wish to engage with the Cantera community but do not anticipate using it yourself (eg. lab directors, supervisors).


Everyone is welcome, and we especially encourage new users to attend!

Please register here via EventBrite. by Tuesday, July 12.

When registering, the “base” ticket gets you into the Saturday afternoon code sprint and poster sessions. Then, you can choose between Friday afternoon or Saturday morning “add on” options, or both.

All participants will have the option of presenting a poster; though this is not required, we encourage everyone to present on the work they are doing that either already uses Cantera or might benefit from using Cantera. This will be a great way to network with other users and generate ideas.


The workshop will be held in downtown Vancouver, just 1km from the Combustion Symposium’s Convention Center, at Northeastern University — Vancouver, 410 West Georgia Street #1400, Vancouver, BC V6B 1Z3, Canada.
