OBJECTIVES The overall objectives of the workshop of the international Conference on Fire and Smoke Resistant Materials were to: identify promising technologies most likely to lead to improvements in fire resistance of future aircraft interiors; characterize the state of development of these promising technologies; describe the drivers for, or barriers against, the development of improved materials for interiors; and suggest objectives for the Federal Aviation Administration long-term research program to facilitate the development of new materials for future aircraft interiors. The workshop participants were divided into four break-out sessions: Toxicity, Fire Performance Parameters, Drivers for Materials Development, and New Materials Technology. Summaries of issues identified in these sessions follow. The workshop summaries reflect the views and opinions of the individuals who participated in the sessions. These views have not been subjected to review and do not represent the position of the committee of the National Research Council that organized the workshop. 223
