By Pau Costa Foundation

29 April 2019 to 3 May 2019
Fire ecology and management

The conference theme is Fuels of Today: Fire Behavior of Tomorrow. It is being presented to bring focus to the many issues associated with understanding fuels, fire behavior, large wildfires, and how they affect sound decision making and effective wildland fire management in the future.


This conference will provide government and non-government professionals at all levels a valuable opportunity to share information globally about wildland fire behavior and fuels, especially as it pertains to physical, biological, economic, and social sciences.


The 6th International Fire Behavior and Fuels Conference offers a forum where past experience and lessons learned are documented, current work showcased, and emerging ideas/technology presented to provide a strong foundation that will facilitate setting a course to the future that addresses and responds to developing challenges locally, regionally, and globally.
