main aim of the Eurofire Conference is
"to support knowledge advancement and to facilitate information
exchange with regard to
fire engineering protection."
Conferences are unique in that they provide a platform
for European issues that directly relate to the work of Fire
Safety Engineers. The 2013 event focuses on a wide range of
topics from Education Certification, Harnessing New Technologies
and facilitating Architectural Trends whilst emphasis continues
to maintain focus on Application and Cases Studies. After
successful events in both Belgium and France this year’s
conference will be host in Switzerland. The location is the
charming city of Basel on the borders of France and Germany
Safety Engineering facilitates safe use and assessment of
building projects more efficiently than the Prescriptive Approach
traditionally used in regulations. The engineering focus on
Performance based indicators leads to better adapted technical
building solutions as well as more efficiency on both Cost
and Environmental levels.
2 day programme is made up of 26 papers which discuss the
latest trends and applications on Fire Safety Engineering
and there is plenty of time allocated for visiting the exhibition
stands and networking with colleagues.
Programme Committee have put together a technical programme
which they believe is important and interesting for industrial
companies and related industries such as the insurance sector
to discuss specific issues or general problems and to find
appropriate engineering solutions.
Conference will open with a session on the Global Approach
of the Fire Safety Engineering. Eminent lecturers from USA
and Australia will share their experiences that can be used
as a base for education and certification of Fire Safety Engineers
second session will debate the way to measure the Qualification
of Fire Safety Engineers. There is now an urgent requirement
both within Europe and worldwide to uniformly define the status
and qualifications of the Fire Safety Engineer.
impact of Architectural Trends will then be evaluated by way
of some examples, ranging from Road Tunnels to Super Tall
Buildings. Fire Safety Engineering can be applied in all cases
but requires specific skills case by case.
downturn in the worldwide economic situation has sharply focused
the industry on the Cost Efficiency of the Designs and Life
Cycle analysis. Risk management, Cost Benefit analyses and
Positive Balance are the key words in this session.
technologies as such as Vortex Suppression Systems, Sprinkler
Vacuum technology and the Application of Fire Safety Engineering
by way of Computer Simulation or Full Scale Fire Tests will
be discussed in the closing session of the conference.
Eurofire Conferences will be wrapped-up by an international
team of panelists drawn from leading Institutions.
SHOULD ATTEND EUROFIRE ?
Like many other fire protection events, EUROFIRE attracts
participation from a wide audience, namely fire protection-
and construction experts, scientists and public authority
personnel as well as representatives from industry and trade
