Call for Workshops

Call for Workshop Proposals - Closed

The workshops will take place on Monday, October 28th, the day preceding the Wildland Fire Canada Conference (WFCC).  Both in-person and virtual workshops will be considered.

The purpose of the workshops is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in wildland fire to discuss and exchange interests on defined topics.  We view these workshops as an opportunity for information transfer.

There will be a nominal registration fee for participants to cover the cost of the meeting rooms, refreshments, and audio-visual equipment. Instructors are not required to pay this fee.

Proposals should include the following information:

  • Title of the workshop
  • Name of the sponsoring organization, if applicable
  • Names, affiliations, and email addresses of the workshop instructors
  • Short bios (100 words) of the workshop instructors, including a description of their qualifications relative to the topic area.
  • Proposed length of the workshop: (2 – 4 – 6 – 8 hours.)
  • A brief, one paragraph description of the workshop
  • A statement of the workshop’s objectives/goals
  • The maximum number of participants (if any)
  • Any special facility needs (e.g., LCD Projector, room set-up, internet connection, etc.)

Workshops with less than the minimum registration may be cancelled at the discretion of the conference organizers.

Workshop proposals will be evaluated based on their overall quality and fit with respect to the WFCC program.

The deadline for submissions is Monday June 3. Notifications of accepted workshops will be announced by Monday June 17.

If you have any questions, please contact Mikel Robinson at execdir@iawfonline.org or (406) 625-7059
