The 12th Asia-Oceania Symposium on Fire Science and Technology (AOSFST) will be hosted as a virtual conference between 7 and 9 December 2021. Post-conference workshops will take place on 10 December 2021. The Program Overview is available here.
The conference will be hosted by the Fire Safety Engineering Research Group at The University of Queensland. The conference is organised in collaboration with Charles Darwin University, Griffith University, Monash University, Victoria University, The University of Melbourne, Queensland University of Technology, RMIT University, University of New South Wales, University of Canterbury, and Massey University.
The main focus of the AOSFST series of conferences is to provide an opportunity for researchers, practitioners and engineers to share and discuss their research related to fire safety science and engineering in the Asia-Oceania and around the world. Research and engineering outcomes presented at AOSFST should include fundamental work that progresses the understanding and application of fire safety engineering and science.
As the key conference in the Asia-Oceania region, AOSFST is a venue for networking and where the latest research is presented. In addition to technical sessions during the conference, AOSFST 2021 will provide an opportunity for further discussions both formally following presentations and informally through the planned receptions, meals and other breaks.
The first AOSFST was held in 1992, established under the umbrella of the International Association for Fire Safety Science (IAFSS). The AOSFST has been held periodically at about 3-year interval at the midterm of the IAFSS international symposia. The three most recent Asia-Oceania symposia were held successfully in Hefei (2012), Tsukuba (2015), and Taipei (2018). The 12th AOSFST will see the community meeting for the first time on the Australasia – between 7 and 9 December 2021 in Brisbane, Australia.
