Oral presentations will include academic/government/industry experts in chosen areas discussing their discoveries and developments in the preparation, structure and properties of layered systems. The program will be organized similar to that of a Gordon Conference, with morning and evening sessions, and afternoons devoted to networking.

Specific areas of interest include but are not limited to:


  • Flame Retardant Chemistry

  • Polymer Nanotechnology for Flame Retardant Applications

  • Flame Retardant Surface Treatments

  • Fire and Thermal Polymer Degradation Modeling

  • Processing and Preparation of Flame Retardant Materials

  • Combustion Structure and Property Relationships

  • Fire Testing and Methodology

  • Regulations, Codes & Standards of Fire and Environmental Safety


A poster session for students who cannot present oral talks is expected as well to occur during one (or more) of the evening networking events.
