The Fire Continuum Conference: Preparing for the Future of Wildland Fire
Presented by Association for Fire Ecology and International Association of Wildland Fire
The University of Montana, Missoula
May 21-24, 2018

The AFE/IAWF Fire Continuum Conference is now accepting proposals for workshops to be held on Monday, May 21, 2018, the day prior to the conference at the University of Montana, Missoula, Montana.  Workshops will be held on Monday morning and may be 2 or 4 hours in length.

The purpose of the workshops is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss new and revised software, sampling techniques, and professional improvement in wildland fire and to discuss and exchange interests on a defined topic.  We view these workshops as an opportunity for Technology Transfer - the process to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a wider range of users who can then further develop and exploit them.

Everyone is invited to submit a proposal for a workshop.

These proposals should contain the following: 

  • The title of the workshop
  • Workshop leader(s) name(s) and contact information (address, phone, and email)
  • A 200-600 word abstract describing the workshop which will be displayed on the conference website.  Include figures if appropriate.
  • Length of workshop (2 or 4 hours)
  • Minimum and Maximum number of participants
  • Special needs.  The conference will supply audio, laptops and projectors for the workshop.  The workshop leaders need to provide handouts, and other instructional materials.  The leader should specify if additional tables or other equipment are needed.
  • Costs.  There will be a nominal registration fee for participants to ensure that participants attend the workshops in which they register.  If the workshop organizers wish additional compensation, they must collect the costs at the workshop.  Please list the amount of this additional cost.

Please submit all workshop proposals before December 8, 2017 (extended)
