Call for Abstracts Open for 11th Conference on Performance-Based Codes & Fire Safety Design Methods—Deadline 30 September 2015
Performance-based fire protection design continues to grow in use and acceptance. However, fire protection engineering has not reached the state of other engineering disciplines, where performance-based design is the norm. Because it is an emerging field, major new developments occur at a rapid pace.
Since 1996, SFPE, along with several partner organizations, has held a biennial conference to showcase state-of-the-art practices in performance-based code approaches and engineering design methods. In May 2016, SFPE will hold the 11th Conference on Performance-Based Codes and Fire Safety Design Methods in Warsaw, Poland, and is currently seeking presentation abstracts on performance-based codes and performance-based design. The deadline for abstract submissions is 30 September 2015.
The Conference on Performance-Based Codes and Fire Safety Design Methods has established a reputation within the fire protection engineering community as the preeminent event for keeping abreast of advancements in performance-based fire protection design. The program will showcase emerging technologies, proven methods, approaches that need modification and other topics of interest to those focused on performance-based fire protection design. Conference attendees will be professionals involved in all disciplines of engineering, regulation development and enforcement, testing, standards of development and development of engineering design methods. SFPE seeks abstracts for paper presentations on subjects related to current developments and observations with regard to the use or implementation of performance-based codes or fire safety design methods.
Details about abstract submission, including acceptable topics and submittal requirements, can be found on the SFPE website.
