The following is a partial directory for conferences, journals, and research networks. Research groups and companies will be added later.
Conferences: The below is a partial list of upcoming conferences which will have structural fire engineering topics. A more complete list can be found here.
- Applications of Structural Fire Engineering conference: held bi-annually; next conf in Manchester 2017.
- Fire and Materials: held bi-annually, last in February 2017. Proceedings at cost.
- International Association Fire Safety Science conference: held tri annually, last conference held in 2017. Proceedings are free.
- Interflam conference: held tri-annually, last years conference was July 4-6th 2016. Proceedings at cost.
- Structures in Fire conference: held bi-annually, next conference is in 2018 in Belfast. Proceedings are free.
- Structures in Fire Forum (STIFF): held twice a year, presentations done by consulting and research engineers. Full presentations can usually be downloaded for free.
- Canadian Society of Civil Engineers: Held annually usually has a session symposium for fire safety engineering in 2016. Student papers are highly encouraged.
