Welcome!

The Burgers Program and Combustion Institute Summer School on Fire Safety Science will bring together graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and early-career researchers and engineers, engaged in fire science, as well as distinguished instructors from leading higher-education institutions and research programs in fire safety around the world. The summer school will take place on June 8-12 2020 on the campus of the University of Maryland in College Park. The objectives of the summer school are to expose participants to a broad range of advanced topics with a mix between fundamental courses that emphasize the theoretical foundations of the engineering problem and application courses that describe the engineering configurations and emphasize current challenges in the engineering practice. The objectives are also to build a strong international network of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, early-career researchers and engineers, instructors and leading researchers.
