The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) is hosting the Sixth International Fire Ecology and Management Congress in San Antonio, Texas, USA. This Fire Congress is the sixth in a series that AFE has hosted every third year starting in 2000, and is the first time that it is not located along either U.S. coastline. The theme of the Congress is "Advancing Ecology in Fire Management." AFE's challenge is to continue to bridge the ecology of fire with fire management, and facilitate more collaboration among researchers, educators and managers. The opportunity to meet with each other face-to-face in a conference setting is invaluable to meeting this challenge.

Topics for workshops, special session, and presentations include, but are not limited to:

  • Fire Ecology
  • Fire Management
  • Fire Research
  • Climate Change
  • Human Dimensions of Fire
  • Global/International Fire
  • Case Studies

Submissions and Registration Dates:

  • November 1, 2014:  Call for Special Sessions, Workshops, and  Attached Meetings
  • January 15, 2015:  Call for Oral Presentation Abstracts and Poster Abstracts
  • June 1, 2015:  Early Bird Registration Opens
