We invite you to submit proposals for oral and poster presentations at the 9th International Fire Ecology and Management Congress. While not required, we encourage proposals related to the congress theme, “Life with Fire: Prescriptions for Resilience.” Presentations will be grouped into sessions based on topics, and presenters will have the opportunity to present in-person or virtually.
Virtual talks will be conducted through Zoom, with the opportunity for interaction through online chats, questions, and discussion. All presentations will be recorded and available for viewing after the Congress.
Science and Management Track
In an effort to integrate research and practice, presenters can select if their talk fits into the “Science & Management” Track. This can be a presentation conducted jointly by managers and researchers, a presentation that describes applied science or science-management collaborations, or we can pair two related presentations from a manager and researcher back-to-back in the schedule.
Oral presentations are 20 minutes, which includes 2-5 minutes for questions and discussion. Presentations can focus on research results or proposals, lessons learned, case studies, best practices, and more.
Poster presenters will have the ability to share their poster in a virtual poster session, create a short video to highlight key points, interact with attendees and respond to questions, and be part of our onsite poster session if attending in-person.
Fire AFEx Talks
These are 15-minute presentations given during a plenary session with full Fire Congress attendance. Rather than focusing on specific research results, these compelling and engaging talks focus on key ideas and issues related to the congress theme.

If you would like your proposal to be considered for a Fire AFEx talk, please select the appropriate box on the online submission form.
Proposals will be evaluated for inclusion based on the clarity of the abstract, the relevance of the topic, and its appeal to attendees. Please have the following information ready when you submit your proposal:
- Contact information for the presenter
- List of co-author names and affiliations (if applicable)
- Title of presentation
- Abstract (200 words or less)
- Presenter bio (100 words or less)
