Event Overview:

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!
