ABSTRACT ONLY The underlying premises for the fire research program at NIST have changed over the years and so has the focus of the research effort. This presentation reviews that history, and then examines how the world is changing including the state of the fire problem, fire safety technology and ongoing research, and summarizes the fire research priorities of NIST, in particular, and points out some of the central issued facing the fire research and engineering communities, generally.
