International conference ASFE


The conference is currently planned to be a hybrid meeting. We hope that many of you will be able to attend in person but we will also provide an online component for those who cannot or wish to join online.

Should the epidemic situation change and in-person attendance would not be possible, the conference will be hold completely online.


International conference »Applications of structural fire engineering«, ASFE’ 21, will be 7th consecutive successful international conference on fire safety and will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Previous ASFE conferences were held in Prague (2009, 2011 and 2013), Dubrovnik (2015), Manchester (2017) and Singapore (2019). The conference aims to bring together experts and specialists in design against fire from all over the world to share ideas and to acquire knowledge in the field of structural fire engineering. ​Themes, addressed at the ASFE’21 conference, will (among others) include fire safe design of concrete, steel, timber and composite structures, concrete spalling, fire protection of structural elements, numerical modelling of fire development, heat transfer and mechanical response of structural materials, development of new materials, standardisation of procedures and materials as well as case studies. In accordance with the conference’s title, the emphasis of the conference will be on application of novel knowledge in structural fire engineering practice. Conference ASFE’21 is being organized by Faculty of civil and geodetic engineering, University of Ljubljana (UL FGG) and will be held between 9th and 11th of June 2021 at Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre. The ASFE’21 will take place alongside another international fire safety event »Fire safety Conference & Expo« under organisation of Slovenian Fire Protection Association. The programme is being designed carefully in order to allow interested participants to attend both events to the greatest extent possible.
