ForestFire 2013 is ai conference organized by Irstea, the French National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture, to provide ai valuable opportunity to share information about forest fire risk modelling and mapping with ai focus on vulnerability in wildland urban interfaces (WUI). In Mediterranean regions, these interfaces are strongly vulnerable to forest fires but also concentrate most fire ignitions, this trend increasing with the global change. The conference will propose to better understand the vulnerability in these areas according to their spatial structure, components (fuel, stakes, etc.), resistance, resilience, exposure, firefighting, management, etc. The conference will try to sum up the scientific knowledge related to vulnerability assessment in WUI and to favour exchanges between researchers and land and risk managers, security services and general decision makers on this topic.

All relevant institutions and interested individuals are invited to participate.

We invite you to submit abstracts to the ForestFire conference on the following topics:

Characterization of WUI
Vulnerability assessment in WUI
Post-fire assessment in WUI
Management in WUI
Firefighting in WUI

We encourage submissions for oral presentations and poster presentations at the conference website:

The deadline for submitting an abstract is 30th June 2013.

All abstracts will be reviewed and notification of acceptance made by 31st July 2013.
