Fire and Materials 2021 is the 16th edition of the international conference and exhibition that takes place between 1st to 3rd February 2021 at the Hyatt Centric Hotel, San Francisco, California, USA.
29 years after our first event in Washington, this major international forum still focuses on the fire performance of materials and the products into which they are made. This is increasingly relevant to those working in the materials and construction industries and the associated research and regulatory sectors.
The conference focuses on the needs of manufacturers, their customers, designers and regulators, who require up-to-date information on fire issues, including new materials, applications, assessment techniques and regulatory requirements. Papers on fire chemistry flame retardants, FR applications and modelling are welcomed, along with those on fire performance in construction, electro technical and transport applications.
The conference also addresses specific topical issues and over the last decade, introduced parallel sessions on fire investigation, large outdoor fires including wildland urban interface fire studies and facade fires.
