At the Crossroads: Looking Toward the Future in a Changing Environment (Download Flyer PDF)


The  4th Fire Behavior and Fuels Conference will provide government and non-government professionals a valuable opportunity to share information globally about wildland fire behavior and fuels, especially as it pertains to physical, biological, economic and social sciences.


Wildland fire management is at a crossroads; facing choices that can lead to vastly different outcomes: One will promote continuation of what has taken place over recent decades and incorporate incremental changes to improve existing program function and efficiency; another will embark on a more innovative path to expand programs that better respond to changing complexities in fire environments, societal focus, population growth and science and technological capability. We need to accelerate our focused research, as well as the integration of science into decision-making to assure that future fire management is based on the best available information and is thus, more effective. The 4th Fire Behavior and Fuels Conference offers a forum where past experience and lessons learned are documented, current work showcased and emerging ideas/technology presented to provide a strong foundation that will facilitate setting a course for the future that addresses and responds to developing challenges locally, regionally and globally. 



nullContributed oral, poster and special session papers may cover a wide variety of topics. Proposals that make creative use of the conference theme are especially welcome. Visit the conference webpage for a full listing of suggested topics and an explanation of the session formats.
