 Since 1979 Interflam has brought together engineers, scientists, practitioners and regulators from around the globe to hear the latest state of the art papers, meet with new colleagues and importantly, to network with their peers in a friendly atmosphere conducive to exchanging ideas and developing new ones.

Interflam is organised by Interscience Communications in association with some of the world’s leading fire science institutes and organisations.

• NIST/Building & Fire Research Laboratory, USA
• National Fire Protection Association, USA
• Society of Fire Protection Engineers, USA
• SP Fire Technology, Sweden

As with previous conferences the programme will have a core plenary and several parallel sessions, supported by posters, exhibitions, demonstrations, workshops, discussion groups and student activities. The conference is intended to create an interface between the researcher, the fire safety engineer and the designer so that good fire science can be promptly harnessed to provide a safer built environment.


Additional Information

 Call for papers deadline is 1st November 2012. As always Interflam asks that prospective authors submit papers that embrace the general theme of the conference:
