Asia-Oceania Symposium on Fire Safety Materials Science and Engineering


The 5th Asia-Oceania Symposium on Fire Safety Materials (AOFSM) is jointly organized by ARC Training Center for Fire Safety, Asia-Oceania Association for Fire Safety Materials Science and Engineering, and the University of New South Wales.

The conference will feature the following research topics:

  • Innovative flame retardant polymers and composites
  • Flame retardant nanocomposites
  • Bio-inspired flame retardant materials
  • Multi-scale computational models for fire and evacuation
  • Wildland fire safety and energy storage systems
  • Improving flame retardancy of fibers, textiles, foams and films
  • Eco-friendly flame retardants for soot and toxicity suppressions
  • Fundamental in fire dynamics, fire testing, and fire safety science

Fire retardancy expert Kelvin Shen will be attending this event representing U.S. Borax.
