The organizing committee (Maria Garlock, Chair) and the SiF steering committee hosted the “Ninth International Conference on Structures in Fire” in Princeton, USA from June 8 to June 10, 2016. The main mission of SiF conferences is to provide an opportunity for researchers, practitioners and engineers to share their “Structures in Fire” research, technology, and expertise with their peers in an international forum.
In addition to high quality state-of-the-art presentations, the 2016 SiF conference placed significant value on discussions at the conference, both formally following presentations, and informally through receptions, meals, and breaks. Further, the conference costs were made affordable for participants. More information on the conference can be found at the official conference website. Pictures of the conference can be found here.
