Thank you for your interest in the 5th International Fire Behavior and Fuels Conference which was held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Australia on April 12-14, 2016. The conference was held concurrently in Portland, Oregon, in the United States.
Watch for information about the next conference which will be held tentatively in 2019.
This International Association of Wildland Fire conference occurs only every three years, with the last in 2016 in both Melbourne, Australia and Portland, Oregon. In 2013 it was held in both Raleigh, North Carolina, and St Petersburg, Russia.
Nearly 300 participants from emergency services, state, federal and local government, industry, NGOs, research and education attended in Melbourne, with a further 360 in Portland. We encourage participation of government and non-government staff and volunteers at all levels.
