Exploring the Mega-fire Reality 2011

14-17 November 2011

Florida State University Conference Center, Florida, USA

In many parts of the world both the area and intensity of wildland fires have been growing alarmingly. However, it is not only the number of fires that are changing, but it is also the nature of these fires that are changing. Global warming, over-accumulation of fuels in fire-prone forests, and growth at the wildland-urban interface all suggest that the fire protection strategies we have used in the past may no longer serve us so well in the future.

The conference brings together experts from around the world and addresses the following major topics:

  • Megafires: Why is their frequency increasing? 
  • Why megafires require special understanding and approaches 
  • Perspectives and lessons learned from around the world 
  • Choices and options before and after megafires 

Call for abstracts
Please submit abstracts for presentation at the symposium by 6 May 2011.
