Call for Presentations
The Call for Presentations is open! We have provided an online submission form for your convenience.
We invite you to submit your presentation proposal for consideration for The Fire Continuum Conference Program. Please select from an Oral Presentation (20 minutes), Micro talk (10 minute) or a Poster Presentation. We anticipate there will a high number of proposals submitted, and due to space limitations it is likely that not all oral presentations will be accepted, those that are not will be asked if they wish to present as a micro-talk or poster.
For accepted special sessions, you will submit your abstract via the online submission form as well. All special session presentations are 20 minutes and if you are part an accepted special session, you will need to obtain a special session ID number from your session organizer prior to submitting your abstract.
You will need to provide contact information, Presentation Title, Presentation Abstract (Please ensure that it meets the 400 word limit and that it is written with as much non-technical language as possible, and that it describes the areas that will be specifically addressed in the presentation), Presenter bio, additional authors.

All presenters at the conference are encouraged to submit a summary of their presentation or poster for publication in the Conference Proceedings. Submissions may be full papers, extended abstracts, or abstracts. No distinction will be made between presentations or posters. All abstracts accepted to the Conference will be published as originally submitted unless the authors submit a revised abstract by May 21, 2018.
Proceedings provide a lasting record of the content covered during the Conference. By submitting a summary of the work you presented at the Conference, others can learn from and cite your contribution. Extended abstracts in particular are a great option to provide readers with more detail of your project compared to a short abstract, but they do not preclude publication in other outlets.
