The Congress provides a week long focus on the science and technologythat are the basis for the management of wildland fire. The theme of theopening plenary session is “Changing fire regimes: Context andconsequences,” featuring invited speakers who will further explore thistopic that is so significant for fire management. We have receivedproposals for over 30 special sessions on specific fire ecology andmanagement themes.

presentations and posters submitted by individuals within the fire ecology
and management community.

We invite abstracts for oral and poster papers in these general categories:

We encourage your participation in the Fire Congress.  It will be a great
opportunity to learn about new science, explore the latest technology, and
develop innovative ideas for managing wildland fire.
