Workshops

Workshops will be held all day on Monday, May 19, 2014, the day prior to start of the conference.

Workshop are half- or full-day (4 or 8 hour) training sessions for new and revised software, sampling techniques, and professional improvement.  The purpose of the workshops are to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in wildland fire to discuss and exchange interests on a defined topic. We view these workshops as an opportunity for Technology Transfer; the process to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a wider range of users who can then further develop and exploit them.  Workshops will be run between the times of 8am and 5pm.  Check each individual workshop for exact hours.  There will be a no-host social at 6pm that night.
