The overall goal of the conference is (1) to address the priority research issues, and (2) to synthesize existing empirical data in a quantitative manner that will improve or provide additional model components designed to further post-wildfire research and assist the fire-effects community and land managers in the decision-making process. An additional goal is to encourage young career scientists to contribute papers and to participate in these in-depth discussions. 

The purpose of this conference is to provide a forum: (1) where invited speakers can present different perspectives and new insights on each priority research issue, (2) for in-depth discussions (among all participants representing a variety of disciplines related to wildfire) oriented toward resolving issues, (3) for interactive field trips that highlight some of the issues, (4) to develop plans and proposals for future collaborative research efforts in different regions of the world using identical standard methods established for post-wildfire research, and (5) to determine the interest in establishing long-term measurement programs and organize them at different sites around the world so that post-wildfire response and recovery rates can be directly compared.
