The International Association of Fire Safety Science (IAFSS) will organize the 13th International Symposium on Fire Safety Science on 27 April to 1 May 2020 at the University of Waterloo, Canada. See http://iafss2020.ca for details.
The Symposium is the premier fire safety science meeting in the world. It has been organized triennially since 1985 by the IAFSS. The program features invited lectures from the world’s top fire science researchers, parallel sessions with presentations of fully peer-reviewed papers and poster sessions for recent work over the five days of the Symposium. In addition to the technical sessions, numerous social activities are planned to cater for informal meeting and networking with colleagues and friends. Symposium activities will be preceded by a series of weekend workshops.
Research areas of interest include material behaviour in fires, fire dynamics, fire chemistry, structures in fire, fire suppression, wildland and WUI fires, evacuation and human behaviour, fire risk analysis and fire safety design. Other topics include fire detection and smoke control, explosions and industrial fires, fire codes and standards and fire safety management.
