Event description

Description

Wildfires are an annual occurrence in the EU, Australia and the America’s causing massive damage to the environment, and more importantly, endangering lives and forcing the large-scale evacuation of entire residential areas. FSEG, as part of the EU Horizon2020 RISE GEO-SAFE project has organised a one-day workshop with a focus on human behaviour associated with wildfire evacuation and predictive modelling tools that can be used to simulate wildfire evacuation.

  • The main workshop themes are:
    • Identification and quantification of human behaviour in response to wildfire.
    • Role, requirements and capabilities of evacuation modelling in the planning and management of wildfires.
    • Development and application of Large Scale Wildfire Evacuation Models
    • Future directions for wildfire evacuation modelling.
  • The workshop consists of:
    • 7 invited lectures
    • 3 discussion panels
    • 1 hands on session using urbanEXODUS urban-scale evacuation simulation model
    • 1 demonstration session showing recent developments in coupling wildfire, pedestrian and vehicle models

Attendance at the workshop is free and all are welcome but places are limited, so please register early.

The deadline to register is 14 Feb 2020.

GEO-SAFE (Geospatial based Environment for Optimisation Systems Addressing Fire Emergencies) is a H2020-MSCA-RISE project (n.691161), co-ordinated by FSEG of the University of Greenwich with 17 partners from 7 countries (United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, Netherlands and Australia) and is a four year project running from May 2016 to April 2020. The aim of GEO-SAFE is to create a network enabling the two regions to exchange knowledge, ideas and experience, thus boosting the progress of wildfires knowledge and the related development of innovative methods for dealing efficiently with such fires.
