Held on the first day of AFAC17 powered by INTERSCHUTZ, the CRC's Research Forum attracted more than 330 emergency service managers, volunteers, researchers and industry representatives. The Forum saw 43 papers presented, with a further ten research papers presented on the following two days. The CRC has previously published the AFAC17 Research Proceedings, which includes all the research papers apart from the above. Broader emergency management papers from the Wednesday and Thursday aspects of the conference are available on the AFAC website.
