Join us in Orlando for FireVision 20/20!

The Association for Fire Ecology's 7th International Fire Congress will be held November 28-December 2, 2017 in Orlando, Florida.  We will offer an exciting blend of learning opportunities for fire managers, natural resource professionals, policy leaders, and the academic and research community. Presentations will feature the latest in research results and applications.

Workshops throughout the week will provide innovative training opportunities built on the research presentations. Special sessions will focus on unifying the science and applications around key management issues. Round table discussions will allow small groups to focus on key topics and principles. Saturday field trips will demonstrate how much of the material described and discussed the rest of the week is being applied across Florida.
