As in previous years, I'm a co-convener of the Wildfires session at the 2008 European Geophysics Union General Assembly (along with Rosa Lasaponara, Luciano Telesca and Don McKenzie). We hope this year's session will be as successful as ever, and are expecting the best papers presented to compose a special issue of Ecological Modelling. The call for abstracts is now open (copied below). Abstracts should be submitted at the conference website. Important deadlines are:

Abstract Submission: 14 January 2008
Financial Applications 07 December 2007
Pre-registration: 31 March 2008



Subject: Call for Abstracts: Wildfires session at EGU 2008

5 November 2007

Dear Colleagues [Apologies for cross-posting],

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2008 is to be help from 13-18 April 2008 in Vienna, Austria. We invite you to participate in the session 'Spatial and temporal patterns of wildfires: models, theory, and reality' (NH8.4/BG2.16 - co-organized by the Natural Hazards & Biogeosciences divisions).

Session description:
Wildfires are the result of a large variety and number of interacting components, producing patterns that vary significantly both spatially and temporally. This session will examine models, theory, and empirical studies in wildfire research. We encourage submissions in any one or combination of these three main areas, and envision bringing together wildfire hazard managers, applied researchers, and theoreticians. Posters are also very much encouraged, as we plan to have both lively
oral and poster sessions.

The best papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of Ecological Modelling

ABSTRACT DEADLINE: 14 January 2008
Web site for submission: http://meetings.copernicus.org/egu2008/

Please note that the deadline for financial applications is 07 December 2007, and for pre-registration is 31 March 2008. We look forward to seeing you in Vienna. Please forward this message also to your colleagues.

With best regards,

Lasaponara, R. (Convener)
