The Fire Continuum Conference Proceedings

A formal proceedings of the conference will be published as an online government proceedings publication through the US Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station.  All presenters at the conference are encouraged to submit a summary of their presentation or poster for publication in the Conference Proceedings. Submissions may be full papers, extended abstracts, or abstracts. No distinction will be made between presentations or posters. All abstracts accepted to the Conference will be published as originally submitted unless the authors submit a revised abstract by May 31, 2018.

Why submit?

Proceedings provide a lasting record of the content covered during the Conference. By submitting a summary of the work you presented at the Conference, others can learn from and cite your contribution. Extended abstracts in particular are a great option to provide readers with more detail of your project compared to a short abstract, but they do not preclude publication in other outlets.

Forest Service authors must follow their unit’s review procedures; non-Forest Service papers should be reviewed following their organization’s/agency’s procedures.
