SFPE EUROPE CALL FOR PAPER – MALAGA: CONFERENZA 22 E 23 MAGGIO 2019

The 3rd SFPE Europe Conference on Fire Safety Engineering will be held in Malaga, Spain, 22-23 May 2019. The SFPE conference is being hosted by the SFPE Spanish Chapter with support from our SFPE European Chapters.

The deadline to submit the presentation abstracts is 1 October 2018.

SFPE’s conferences have established a reputation globally as the premier events for keeping abreast of advancements in fire safety engineering. In 2018, SFPE hosted the second European conference in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, which drew over 180 participants from the European continent.

Fire safety engineering is growing rapidly in many European countries. The SFPE European Chapters has been addressing the regional needs to facilitate greater networking, collaboration, and exchange among fire safety engineering professionals as well as a pursuit of technical knowledge and education.

Conference presentations will be on subjects relevant to fire safety engineering, with a focus on both the role of the fire safety engineer and on professional practice. The conference program committee has developed the following list of topics that we would like this year’s program to include. Please consider these topics as you prepare your abstract, and forward to peers who may be interested in presenting on one of these topics.
