In constantly changing environments, large wildland fires and structural fires of ample ranges of severity put largely at-risk entire communities, and cause significant losses. In this regard, the communities in the Asia-Pacific (AP) region have a major role to play in the development of local solutions to these problems.
The main goal of the APCISS-2 is to introduce the AP combustion and fire safety community to fundamental combustion problems, focusing particularly in the application of combustion and fire science to outdoor fires. Throughout the planning and development of the school special emphasis will be given to outdoor fires, connecting combustion theory with real fire scenarios and applications.
APCISS-2 will bring together graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, early-career researchers, academics and practicing engineers working in fire science. It is expected that the school will provide an instance to build and reinforce collaborations between different academic and non-academic institutions
The school activities will take place in person on December 4 - 9, 2022 in the coastal cities of Valparaíso and Viña del Mar, Chile, with workshops to be held at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María in Valparaíso.
Applications should be made online through the APCISS-2 website (https://apciss.cl/2022/?page_id=129). Students will be considered for scholarship awards if their applications are received before September 30, 2022.
