Conference Themes

Your research abstract should fit within one of the following broad conference themes:

1. Large-scale observations and models of fire

What observations do we have, and expect to have; and how can they be used for better predicting and understanding fire, its role and impacts?

2. Fire as an Earth system process

How does fire interact with ecosystems, atmospheric chemistry and climate?

3. Fire in relation to land management, conservation, livelihoods and health

What changes in policy and practice would help reconcile different people’s needs and goals, including air quality improvements?

4. Bridging scales and perspectives

How can we integrate the knowledge of fire possessed by different stakeholders (e.g. researchers, practitioners and affected communities), across different spatial and temporal scales?
