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
- The title
of the 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
- Length of workshop (2 or 4 hours)
and Maximum number of participants
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)
