Suppression, Detection and Signaling Research and Applications Symposium (SupDet 2014)
March 4 – 7, 2014
University of Central Florida (UCF), Orlando, FL
We invite you to join us at the Fire Suppression, Detection and Signaling Research and Applications Symposium (SupDet 2014), March 4 -7, 2014 in Orlando, Florida. In addition to 30 presentations on the latest developments in research, technology, and applications for the fire protection community, a special workshop, "SMART Buildings and Fire Safety," will be available for all attendees at no cost. This workshop is a "bridge event" between the Suppression and Detection sessions which all SupDet registrants can attend. Exciting new possibilities for addressing unwanted fires are being realized, based on: (1) available data gathered from an increasingly sensor rich environment, (2) the comprehensive ability to analyze and process this data, and (3) new ways of delivering and using this data. The smart buildings of tomorrow and their sensor rich environments offer great fire safety potential to building owners, occupants, emergency responders, and all other participants in our built environment. The goal of this workshop is to establish a needs assessment for the use of systems in SMART buildings for fire safety.
SupDet 2014 has been co-located with the International Crisis and Risk Communication Conference (ICRC Conference), which is hosted by the Nicholson School of Communication at UCF and being held March 3-5.
We thank the following refreshment sponsors for their support.
