In September, 1130 delegates participated in the combined International Bushfire Research Conference 2008 and 15th Annual AFAC Conference. The event was held over three days at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
The conference heard from more than 90 international and Australian speakers from research organisations and from the fire and related industries.
Bushfire CRC Chairman, Len Foster, said the event offered a great opportunity for representatives in the fire industry to exchange information with researchers.
“They saw how leading researchers from around the world are working with industry partners on issues that have been identified as critical to their business,” he said.
