Background and Objective

Structural fire safety is one of the key considerations in the design of built infrastructure. Until the 1990's, there were very few forums for structural fire engineers to exchange ideas and research results. The "Structures in Fire" (SiF) specialized workshop series was conceived in the late 1990's and bore fruit in 2000 when the "First International SiF workshop" was held in Copenhagen, Denmark. This was followed by International SiF workshops that were held in New Zealand in 2002, Canada in 2004 and Portugal in 2006. The title was then changed from workshop to conference, with the SiF'08 International Conference in Singapore in 2008 and Michigan State University USA 2010.

Following the great success of previous workshops and conferences, ETH Zurich was selected to host the 7th International Conference on Structures in Fire SiF2012 in June 2012.

The main mission of SiF conferences is to provide an opportunity for researchers and engineers to share their research, technology and expertise with their peers at an international forum. The special features of the SiF conference series include high quality presentations, adequate time for presentation and discussion, single-track sessions, specific focus on "Structures in Fire" and affordable conference costs for participants.
