Second International Conference on Coal Fire Research
Second International Conference on Coal Fire Research (ICCFR2)
As a man-made hazard affecting limited natural resources in specific locales as much as the atmosphere at large, spontaneous coal seam fires are a delicate object of scientific research. Their very complex nature responds to a whole range of disciplines and necessitates a concerted interdisciplinary and international effort for effective mitigation. The repercussions of the phenomenon spread right into the realm of society and politics.
The Second International Conference on Coal Fire Research (ICCFR2) aims to provide the background knowledge which is needed for successful detection, fighting, and environmental assessment of coal fires. Targeting a problem of truly global concern, these tasks require sound scientific handling and expertise. ICCFR2, hence, was designed to rally the international vanguard of coal fire research. With a line-up of more than 50 top international speakers, surveying the entire terrain, from Geosciences and Materials Research, Remote Sensing and Modeling to Fire Fighting and Mining, as well as CDM & Funding, we are sure the conference will live up to its avowed objective: taking international scientific cooperation on the subject to a new integrated and interdisciplinary level!Visitor Demographic (Geographical Regions/Countries): Global

Event In Profile
Organisational security and resilience in today’s climate of extreme threats
National Security and Resilience combines national security needs with an in-depth understanding of the design and implementation of resilience solutions. London sits at the epicentre of knowledge and resilience and is recognised globally as a centre of excellence, notably in national security and resilience.
The NS&R Conference will take place on 8th-9th November in the heart of London, bringing together a wealth of expertise which will entertain, inform and expand understanding. The leading conference programme is matched by its exceptional cast of speakers from across government and industry for one of the best programmes discussing organisational security and resilience.
The importance of organisational resilience
Global turbulence is expected. Competition, instability and uncertainty are constants in a changing world. Organisations face an unprecedented and growing number of potential disruptions to the status quo and the best laid strategic plans. As history repeats itself, prominent organisations will fail unless modern risk management and governance models incorporate scalable resilience metrics.
To survive and prosper in this new environment of heightened uncertainty and change, organisations must move past traditional risk and governance models and focus instead on resilience. Resilience applies at all levels: national, regional, organisational and corporate.
The NS&R Conference will deliver the latest issues and threats facing government departments/agencies, corporations and businesses, and thought provoking discussions on strategies and innovations to ensure you and your organisation meet these changing challenges.
