This Symposium is about fire safety engineering and the development of performance codes for fire safety. It is the second conference in a series, the first of which was in Sydney, Australia last year. The Australian Symposium was exciting because of the impressive efforts underway there to develop and introduce a performance-based fire code. Not to be outdone, this year's Symposium features another such code, the proposed Nordic Model Performance Code. That's fantastic! Our hats are off to Pentti Loikkanen and the other organizers of this Symposium. We hope this series will extend for a number of years and to a number of countries.
