We are seeking "Just in Time" and/or poster presentation proposals in all areas associated with wildland fire safety and human dimensions of wildland fire. Do you have last breaking research, or an emerging topic, or a case study or lessons learned from the current fire season, these sessions are for you.  Just in Time sessions will be 10 mintues in length and must be pre-recorded by May 17th. 

The deadline to submit is May 3rd. 

The global pandemic brings significant burdens for conference planners and attendees alike. These include compliance with social/physical distancing requirements, addressing restrictions on large gatherings, challenges to personal physical and mental health, and concerns for the future. In addition, global travel limitations and individual health concerns are prompting us to think differently about how we deliver the conference and enhance the education and networking opportunities.

Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, IAWF will deliver this conference virtually through a platform that will allow for interactive sessions, posters, networking, and a trade show. We will also provide an opportunity for virtual attached meetings, informal meetings, and brainstorming sessions.

Presenters and attendees will participate from the comfort of their own offices or homes. We will provide presenter guideline and training and will ensure everyone is familiar and comfortable with the technology prior to the conference.
