IIIInternational Symposium on Fire Economics, Planning and Policy:
CommonProblems and Approaches
29April – 2 May 2008, Carolina, Puerto Rico
The first Symposium on Fire Economics, Planning, and Policy was held in San Diego, California in 1999. Fire managers, practitioners, natural resource managers, economists, researchers, academicians, and others came together to discuss economic, planning, and policy issues related to wildfires management impacts. Building on the success of the first symposium, the second International Symposium on Fire Economics was held in Córdoba, Spain during the spring of 2004. Sixty-seven papers and 19 posters were presented at the Symposium, which hosted 245 participants from 12 countries.
We expect this third edition of the International Symposium on Fire Economics to build on the success of the Córdoba one. Mark your calendar and come participate on this symposium, which discusses issues and concerns that are not addressed in other fire conferences. Come partake of the scientific and professional exchange of ideas on the wildland fire management problematic, and then enjoy the tropical island of Puerto Rico.
We invite interested participants to submit abstracts for consideration by the Scientific Committee. Abstracts should be no longer than 350 words. When submitting a proposal please indicate the general theme area in which you want to participate, and also whether you prefer an oral or poster presentation. The final determination as to whether it will be an oral or poster presentation will be made by the Scientific Committee.
Accepted abstracts will be posted on the conference website; submitted papers will be included in a CD-ROM to be distributed at registration. The Organizing Committee is exploring the possibility of having accepted papers publish in possible two refereed journals.
Deadline for submission/uploading of abstracts is 30 April 2007.
