Following the tradition of the previous Conferences, a series of events are planned to take place before and during the 8th ICFFR.

The world is facing a growing challenge in the management of wildfires, which is the constant growth of Wildland Urban Interface areas. The year of 2017 was particularly bad for Portugal, as more than 110 persons died, and thousands of homes and other structures were destroyed by wildfires. Also other places in the world suffered unprecedent destruction by fires during last year.

Bearing this in mind, the ICFFR Organizing Committee as decided to give a special emphasis to the problem of WUI.


Short Courses

We proposed the adaptation of the traditional Short Courses, on fire behaviour and fire safety, to reflect the WUI problem. Both Short Course coordinators accepted the challenge, and we are looking forward to giving you more information on the respective programmes.

These are the titles and dates for the Short Courses:
