Call for Field Trip Proposals 

The field trips will take place on Friday 3 May 2019, the day following the 6th International Fire Behavior and Fuels Conference in Sydney, Australia. 

The purpose of the field trips is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in wildland fire to discuss and exchange interests on a defined topic. We view these field trips as an opportunity to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a wider range of users.

There will be a nominal registration fee for participants to cover the cost of catering and logistics. 

Proposals should contain the following information: 

  • Names, affiliations and email addresses of the facilitator;
  • Title of the field trip;
  • Destination/s;
  • Length;
  • Abstract/description, detailing the objective, intended audience and format;
  • Minimum and maximum number of participants (approx.).

The evaluation criteria include overall quality and the fit with respect to the conference topic - Fuels of Today – Fire Behavior of Tomorrow: Understanding Fire Behavior and Fuels for Sound Decision Making and Effective Management. We are interested in workshops that connect research and management.

The deadline for submissions is 16 October 2018. 

Notifications of accepted workshops will be announced by 10 December 10 2018.
