Submission Deadline 1 June 2020
29 years after our first event in Washington, this major international forum still focuses on the fire performance of materials and the products into which they are made. This is increasingly relevant to those working in the materials and construction industries and the associated research and regulatory sectors. The conference focuses on the needs of manufacturers, their customers, designers and regulators, who require up-to-date information on fire issues, including new materials, applications, assessment techniques and regulatory requirements.  Papers on fire chemistry flame retardants, FR applications and modelling are welcomed, along with those on fire performance in construction, electro technical and transport applications. The conference also addresses specific topical issues and over the last decade, introduced  parallel sessions on fire investigation, large outdoor fires including wildland urban interface fire studies and facade fires.

Technical Presentations

The Programme Committee has targeted specific areas for presentation and invites papers on the following:

Chemistry In Fire Facade Fires
Combustion Toxicity Materials Behavior in Fire
Large Outdoor Fires Wildland Urban Interface Fire Studies 
Environmental Concerns Fire Safety Engineering
Fire retardants, including Nanocomposites Fire Dynamics
Modelling including Pyrolysis Modelling  Fire Hazard and Risk Assessment
