The 7th International Conference on Performance-Based Codes and Fire Safety Design
Methods will take place in Auckland, New Zealand, April 16-18, 2008. Over the past decade, it has developed into one of the preeminent international fire protection code gatherings.
Performance-based design has become an accepted part of fire-safety engineering. However, valuable lessons are still being learned and research continues regarding performance-based codes and performance-based fire safety design.
Starting in 1996, the Society of Fire Protection Engineers, along with several partner organizations, has held a bi-annual seminar to showcase the state-of-the-art in performance-based code approaches and engineering design methods. In 2008, this conference will move to New Zealand, which was one of the first countries to adopt a purely performance based Building Code.
Papers will be presented on newly emerging technologies, as well as perspectives on approaches that have worked well, and approaches that have not worked as well as originally desired. Abstracts are invited for paper presentations on subjects relating to current developments and observations relating to the use or implementation of performance-based codes or fire safety design methods.
