UQ Fire delegations at IAFSS and IFireSS

UQ Fire delegations to present research outcomes at upcoming fire safety science and engineering conferences in June 2017.

The 12th International Symposium on Fire Safety Science (IAFSS) will be hosted by the Division of Fire Safety Engineering at Lund University, Sweden. The Symposium will be held at the Lund University technical faculty campus on June 12-16, 2017.

The 2nd International Fire Safety Symposium will be held at the University of Naples Federico II, Italy; organised by the Department of Structures for Engineering and Architecture and the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction. The Symposium will be held at the Federico II Convention Center on June 7-9, 2017.
