14th International Wildland Fire Safety Summit & Safety Summit Award31st January / #2017FSS
The 14th International Wildland Fire Safety Summit will be held for the first time in Europe, 31st January 2017 in Barcelona. Since 1997, the International Wildland Fire Safety Summit has been the gathering place for members of the global wildland fire community to focus on safety: to discuss significant events and trends in safety, to promote best practices in safety training and operations, to reveal safety related research findings, and to explore new approaches to safety.

This 14th International Wildland Fire Safety Summit is themed on Decision Making in High Risk and High Consequence Environments.  In a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, key decisions, made in time pressured environments, often have far reaching consequences on our people and on the community.

Call for presentations is now open (deadline 10th October):

International Congress on Prescribed Fires
1st-3rd February / #iCOPFires
ICOPFIRES will be the first international congress about prescribed fires in Europe. We aim to connect the diverse stakeholders involved in forest management (e.g. local authorities, fire fighters, foresters, land managers and owners) with researchers from several fields, as biology, geography, ecology, sociology, meteorology, climatology, engineery, soil scientists, physicists among others. It is important to transfer knowledge among the participants and learning from the experiences from all them about the use of prescribed fire for land management.

This congress may serve to dispel doubts, show new areas for research, facilitate the interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary communication between researchers, create synergies between science and stakeholders, knowledge transfer and go beyond the knowledge, building bridges among all the participants with the objective of create the first international network about prescribed fires. The conference is an opportunity to meet experts and managers from all the world, as we have already in the program.

Call for abstracts is now open (deadline 15th September):
