The International Conference on Performance-Based Codes and Fire Safety Design Methods has established a reputation within the fire protection engineering community as the paramount event for keeping abreast of advancements in performance-based fire protection design.
Performance-based fire protection design continues to grow in use and acceptance. However, fire protection engineering has not reached the state of other engineering disciplines, where performance-based design is the norm. Because it is an advancing field, major new developments occur at a rapid pace.
Starting in 1996, the Society of Fire Protection Engineers, along with several partner organizations, has held a biennial conference to showcase the state of the art in performance-based code approaches and engineering design methods. In 2012, this conference will be held in Hong Kong.
Papers will be presented on newly emerging technologies, as well as perspectives on approaches that have worked well, and approaches that have not worked as well as originally desired. Abstracts are invited for paper presentations on subjects relating to current developments and observations relating to the use or implementation of performance-based codes or fire safety design methods.
Share your expertise, showcase your knowledge, and help shape the future of fire protection engineering by participating in this biennial conference.
