2017 Fire Congress: Research Highlights
The Association for Fire Ecology will not create an official Proceedings for the 7th International Fire Ecology and Management Congress. However, we are providing an opportunity for presenters to submit short summaries of their work as a Research Highlight, which will be shared with a much larger audience than will attend the Congress. Research Highlights will be posted on the AFE website as a resource for both fire managers and fire science delivery organizations, such as the JFSP Fire Science Exchange Network. They should also provide openings to help researchers find new connections with their audiences.
To submit a Research Highlight, fill out the form below. Please make sure you proofread your responses and that the information you submit is the final version you'd like publicly available.
You may upload one graphic if it provides compelling support for your key findings. Please make sure that any files you upload are less than 10MB.
Submissions are due December 20, 2017.
If you have any questions, email Alan Long at email@example.com.
