Presenter Information

The Call for Presentations is now open.

We invite you to submit your presentation proposal for consideration for The Fire Continuum Conference Program.

  • Oral Presentations will be 20 minutes in length and grouped with sessions on similar topics (we encourage 15 minutes for your presentation and 5 minutes for Q&A and discussion).
  • Micro-talks are lively quick presentations, 10 minutes in length. This is an entertaining way to engage the audience on a variety of disciplines.  We’ve had great success with Micro-talks in the past, the conference guests truly appreciate this format.
  • Poster Presentations will have a dedicated time on Tuesday Evening to share their presentations with the conference guests.

For accepted special sessions, you will submit your abstract via the online submission form as well. All special session presentations are 20 minutes and if you are part an accepted special session, you will need to obtain a special session ID number from your session organizer prior to submitting your abstract.

Poster Presentation Guidelines

The formal poster session will take place in the UC Ballroom on Tuesday May 22nd from 5:30 to 8:00 pm.  Authors are expected to be present to discuss their poster during that period. A no-host bar and hors d’ oeuvres will be provided during the session. The posters will be vertical and should be no larger than 64 (height) x 36 (wide) inches.  We will provide you with the means to attach your poster (pushpin, Velcro, clips). We are offering a novel opportunity for you to promote your poster presentation, in the form of a one-minute video. The video will serve to promote your poster and invite conference participants to visit with you during the session.  Submit your video online by May 1, 2018.  Fire Continuum Poster Presentation Guidelines

Conference Proceedings
All presenters at the conference are encouraged to submit a summary of their presentation or poster for publication in the Conference Proceedings. Submissions may be full papers, extended abstracts, or abstracts. No distinction will be made between presentations or posters. All abstracts accepted to the Conference will be published as originally submitted unless the authors submit a revised abstract by May 21, 2018.

Why submit?
Proceedings provide a lasting record of the content covered during the Conference. By submitting a summary of the work you presented at the Conference, others can learn from and cite your contribution. Extended abstracts in particular are a great option to provide readers with more detail of your project compared to a short abstract, but they do not preclude publication in other outlets.

View the Proceedings webpage for more information.
