News from the CRC
Call for abstracts extended
The call for abstracts submission date for the 2015 AFAC and Bushfire & Natural Hazards CRC conference has been extended to Monday 23 February 2015 due to the ongoing operational activity across the country.
All CRC projects are encouraged to submit an abstract, with the conference being a major avenue to the fire, land management and emergency service industry. This year the conference theme is New Directions in Emergency Management.
The program will address this theme as well as six core topics:
1. Supporting our People - Challenging our Culture
2. The Science and Modelling of Hazards
3. The Challenge of Information Management
4. Building Community and Disaster Resilience
5. Working Together - Reform of the EM Sector (Interoperability)
6. Shared Responsibility
Note that the process has changed for submitting a paper for the Research Forum. Based on abstract reviews, authors will be given the opportunity to submit a 3000 word paper for a CRC Special Edition of the conference proceedings.
The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC and AFAC annual conference will be held in Adelaide Tuesday 1 - Thursday 3 September 2015 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
