“Fire resilience in ever evolving communities”

The 2018 Fire Sprinkler International conference is hosted by the European Fire Sprinkler Network, in cooperation with Sprinklerfrämjandet. We are now calling for abstracts for papers to be presented at the conference.

Abstracts should be submitted to brinson@eurosprinkler.org by 15 December 2017. They should be no longer than one page and should include the title of the paper, the name(s) of the author(s), the name(s) of those who will present it and the details of their work address, including the company or organisation name, address, telephone number and email address.

The conference programme will explore the following themes:
• Sprinklers to protect the vulnerable
• Architectural freedoms and savings in construction costs with sprinklers
• New sprinkler/water mist technology
• Developments in sprinkler/water mist standards
• Sprinkler system quality assurance and reliability
• Building Information Modelling and sprinklers

We also invite abstracts on fire-engineered projects, where a sprinkler or water mist system has enabled a complex design or permitted the use of unconventional construction materials; on corrosion protection and frost protection; and on new regulatory incentives or requirements to install sprinklers in buildings.

Please note that, in common with most such events, the organisers are not able to reimburse speaker’s travelling and accommodation costs but all selected speakers will be provided with a complimentary conference registration.

Notifications of acceptance will be sent by 16 February 2018. Papers and presentations must be submitted by 11 May 2018.
