IAWF Partner Conference
The 8th International Conference on Forest Fire Research and related events will take place in Coimbra, Portugal, from November 9th to 16th, 2018.
We are in the aftermath of the worst forest fires that ever occurred in Portugal in two dramatic episodes the first one in mid June and the other in mid October. This tragedy in which more than 110 persons lost their lives brings to the attention of all that everyone – including us researchers – has not done what is required to avoid these disasters. These events will be very much present in our meeting.
The Conference aims to provide an up to date on the developments in forest fire science and technology and an opportunity to meet persons and institutions, to promote international cooperation in this research and management area. The scope of this Conference follows its previous editions. There will be six major themes for you to present your work, each of them with several sub-topics, that you can find here on the website. The themes are related to Fire at the Wildland Urban Interface, Fire Risk Management, Decision Support Systems and Tools, Fire Management, Fuel Management and Socio Economic Issues. These themes are not restricted and we are open to other subjects that are proposed, as well.
