The 10th Asia-Oceania Symposium on Fire Science and Technology (10th AOSFST) is to be held on October 5-7, 2015 in Tsukuba, Japan.

The first AOSFST was held in 1992 by the Asia-Oceania Association for Fire Science and Technology (AOAFST), which was established under the umbrella of the International Association for Fire Safety Science (IAFSS). The AOSFST has been held periodically about 3 year interval at the midterm of the IAFSS international symposia. The two most recent Asia-Oceania symposia were held successfully in Melbourne, Australia and Hefei, China in 2010 and 2012, respectively.

The 10th AOSFST will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers, key-note lectures by fire researchers invited from the world and poster sessions for a variety of topics and some exciting events.

Asia-Oceania region is among the areas where fire science and technology are developing most rapidly. We heartily invite your participation, not only from Asia-Oceania region but also from regions in the world.  


  • The Symposium held at the Tsukuba International Congress Center, located in the central area of Tsukuba City. The city is conveniently accessed from central Tokyo by about one-hour trip by express train or highway limousine bus from Narita International Airport. Tsukuba City is the leading science and technology research center in Japan, founded about 40 years ago, where more than 300 research institutes, public and private industrial, are located in rich environment. Here various kinds of advanced research and development that are actively going on, including space engineering, material science, robotics, meteorology, agriculture,  atomic energy, environment, natural disaster, and of course fire. The city attracts many researchers and students from oversea countries as well as from Japan.Also you may enjoy the traditional atmosphere in the suburb of the city.
