ForestFire 2013 conference is organized to provide a valuable opportunity to share information about forest fire risk modelling and mapping with a focus on vulnerability in wildland urban interfaces (WUI). In Mediterranean regions, these interfaces are strongly vulnerable to forest fires but also concentrate most fire ignitions, this trend increasing with the global change. The conference will propose to better understand the vulnerability in these areas according to their spatial structure, components (fuel, stakes, etc.), resistance, resilience, exposure, firefighting, management, etc. The conference will try to sum up the scientific knowledge related to vulnerability assessment in WUI and to favour exchanges between researchers and land and risk managers, security services and general decision‐makers on this topic.
