The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) invites you to the Sixth International Fire Ecology and Management Congress in San Antonio, Texas, USA.  This Fire Congress is the sixth in a series that AFE has hosted every third year starting in 2000, and is the first time that it is not located along either U.S. coastline.

These Fire Congresses are the largest, most comprehensive meetings on the research and management of wildland fire that are held anywhere in the world.  They provide unparalleled exposure to the complexity, breadth, and depth of the field of wildland fire.  Providing a respect­ful, inclusive forum for a diverse range of topics and opinions is one of the founding principles that has been part of the success of the Fire Congress series.  We hope you will share with, learn from, and be inspired by fellow attendees who will gather from across the globe.

The theme of the 6th Fire Congress is “Advancing Ecology in Fire Management.”  We continue to make a lot of progress in the development and dis­semination of new information.  Our challenge is to continue to bridge the ecology of fire with fire management, and facilitate more collaboration among researchers, educators and managers.  The opportunity to meet with each other face-to-face in a conference setting is invaluable to meeting this challenge.


 Topics for workshops, special session, and presentations include, but are not limited to:

Fire Ecology, Fire Management, Fire Research, Climate Change, Human Dimensions of Fire, Global/International Fire, Case Studies

JUNE 1:  Early Bird Registration is Now Open!
