Schedule and Mobile App
 
The conference schedule is now available--you can either use our searchable online version or you can check out the full conference program.
 
Get Whova-the Mobile Conference App!
In addition to the printed program you will receive at registration, we have a free mobile app that you can download on your phone, tablet, or other device. You can easily search the program, find presentation abstracts, presenter bios, a map of the meeting space, connect to social media, post photos, provide feedback on specific sessions, and network with other conference attendees. The app will also provide up to date information for any speaker changes and presentation cancellations.  
 
How to find and join the event:
1. Download the Whova app on your mobile device.
2. Log in to Whova with your name and the email that you used to register, and you'll find the conference at the top of the home screen under "My Events."
3. If you don't see the congress listed, search for the "7th International Fire Ecology and Management Congress" and request to join the event. An invitation code will then be sent to you.
 
We hope you find the app useful! Download it before you get to the conference, as the meeting space will not have WIFI available.
