Those wishing to make an Individual Oral Presentation or Poster Presentations should Submit their Proposal Here. The deadline for Oral Presentations is August 1, 2017 and the deadline for Poster Presentations is September 15, 2017.
The number of oral presentations is limited and will be evaluated for inclusion based on likely degree of interest, uniqueness of topic, and quality of the abstract. Speakers are not restricted to the theme of the Fire Congress, nor the main topics listed below, but we encourage such proposals, and we are very interested in international presentations. All presentations and posters will be evaluated for scientific merit, and authors are encouraged to include management implications in their talks where appropriate.
Several Fire Congress sessions will be devoted to Rapid Fire (Speed) talks and Fire AFEx talks. The Rapid Fire talks will be limited to a maximum of 5 minutes and 15 slides and can focus on research results, research proposals, and/or research-based conclusions. Fire AFEx talks will be 15-minute presentations in one of the morning sessions with full Fire Congress attendance. They are not specific research summaries but compelling and engaging talks that focus on key and interesting ideas and issues related to a variety of fire topics. If you would like your presentation to be considered for one of these other two venues please check the appropriate boxes below.
Please note: All presenters are expected to register for the 7th International Fire Congress. All registration, travel, and lodging are the responsibility of the presenters. Deadline for Oral Presentation Abstract submissions is August 1, 2017 and acceptance notifications go out September 15, 2017. The submission deadline for poster presentations is September 15, 2017 and notifications will go out Oct. 1, 2017.
