Although it is a work in progress, the web site for the Joint Fire Science Conference and Workshop “Crossing the Millenium: Integrating Spatial Technologies and Ecological Principles for a New Age of Fire Management” is on line at:
The site will continue to be improved and updated so please bookmark it. Our e-mail database is by no means complete so please forward this message to others. If you have a list of contacts please notify the Conference Coordinator, Greg Gollberg email@example.com. The purpose of the Joint Fire Science Conference and Workshop is to collect, share, and synthesize information by bringing together all fire research and management activities in four topic areas. These topic areas are:
Mapping, i.e., fuel, vegetation, topographic, and fire regime.
GIS and Remote Sensing Technologies, i.e., developing and implementing standards, protocols, and quality control.
Modeling, i.e., fuel, fire behavior, fire effects, fire hazard and risk.
Treatments, i.e., fuel treatment technologies, methodologies, and applications.
The conference and workshop will be in the new luxurious Grove Hotel on 15-17 June 1999. The Grove is located in the heart of downtown Boise. For our out-of-state guests, the Grove will provide transportation from the airport and for those driving it is easy to access. The hotel is connected to the new 5000 seat Bank of America Centre and is adjacent to the Convention Centre. We are fortunate to have our conference in such a beautiful complex and have a limited number of rooms reserved at affordable government rates.
