At this time, we are still accepting pre-recorded oral presentations and poster presentations.
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.” As of August 27, the Congress has shifted to a virtual format, and all presentations will be presented virtually.
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 a 15-minute presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussion. Presentations can focus on research results or proposals, lessons learned, case studies, best practices, and more. Oral Presentations will be conducted through Zoom and presenters can select to give a live or pre-recorded presentation.
Pre-recorded Presentations (proposals still being accepted)
- Presenters will record and submit their presentation prior to the start of the congress. We will provide instructions for recording your presentation, and the presentation will be available for viewing anytime after the congress begins. You will be able to engage with attendees through the chat and Q&A functions, but we will not host a specific time to show your pre-recorded presentation or for live audience interaction. This option is best for accommodating time zone challenges and those with limited internet service.
Live Presentations (proposals no longer being accepted)
- You will be given a spot in the schedule to give your presentation via Zoom. After your presentation, you’ll have time to answer audience questions. You will also be able to use the chat and Q&A functions for follow-up questions and comments after your presentation. This option is best for those who can present between 11am and 5pm Eastern Standard Time and for those with appropriate internet service.
Posters will be displayed in a “gallery” within our virtual conference website/platform. We will have a dedicated time period for the poster session, where poster presenters will be online to interact with attendees and respond to questions.
- Posters will be submitted prior to the congress as a PDF file. We recommend designing posters in a standard 48” x 36” horizontal format.
- Poster presentations may include an optional pre-recorded video to introduce the topic and key results. Videos can be up to three minutes in length.
- You will be able to interact with attendees during the poster session through the chat functions and 1:1 video meetings if you wish.
- Posters and associated recordings will be available throughout the congress and for up to 6 months after the event.
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)
- Presentation format and topic area
