The 5th Asia-Oceania Symposium on Fire Safety Materials (AOFSM) will be held at University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney in Sydney, Australia in August 2023. The conference will be jointly organized by ARC Training Center for Fire Safety, Asia-Oceania Association for Fire Safety Materials Science and Engineering, and UNSW. The focus of the 5th AOFSM will be to exchange the cutting-edge research and frontier technologies of chemistry, physics, mechanics, thermo-physics (heat transfer, combustion, etc.), information science, computer science and material science to investigate fire dynamics and basic principles of fire safety technologies, to promote academic exchanges between experts and scholars, as well as to strengthen the industrial cooperation.  

More details including Key dates, local information and details about the programme (as it becomes available) can be found at the conference website.
