We will not create an official proceedings for the 7th International Fire Ecology and Management Congress. However, we are providing an opportunity for presenters to submit short summaries of their work as a Research Highlight, which will be shared with a much larger audience than will attend the Congress. Research Highlights will be posted on the AFE website as a resource for both fire managers and fire science delivery organizations, such as the JFSP Fire Science Exchange Network. They should also provide openings to help researchers find new connections with their audiences.
Submissions are due December 20, 2017.
Why submit a short summary of your presentation?
- Share the significance of your work with a much larger audience
- Provide a springboard for sharing the implications of your work with managers
- Promote dialogue between you and others interested in your work
- Create a digital record of the 7th AFE International Congress
