Preferred Abstract (Original): 

One of the challenges still open to wildland fire simulators is the capacity of working under real- time constrains with the aim of providing fire spread predictions that could be useful in fire mitigation interventions. In this paper, a parallel optimization framework for improving wildland fire prediction is applied to a real laboratory fire. The proposed prediction methodology has been tested on a Linux cluster using MPI.
