The Association for Fire Ecology’s Regional Conferences (held yearly) and International Fire Congresses (held every three years) provide opportunities for learning, networking, collaborating, and socializing with colleagues from other agencies, universities, regions, and nations.
AFE’s Fire Congresses are among the largest gatherings of fire scientists in the world, bringing together some of the top fire researchers, managers, and policymakers from dozens of countries across six continents to share their discoveries, experiences, and initiatives in fire ecology. At these events, AFE’s also gives 3 different lifetime achievement awards to people who have made significant contributions to fire ecology and management in the U.S. and Outstanding Student Awards to students who show exceptional promise in the field of fire ecology.
