Wow, what a week! The Bushfire CRC and AFAC conference was one of the best ever. There were so many highlights. It was great to see so many of our researchers engaged and enjoying the time.

The posters were all great this year, as one of the judging panel members it was so hard to determine the winner, there we so many which could have won, but in the end well done to David Barton, who won the judges award. This year we also had an people's award for the best presentation at the Research Forum, won by Mika Peace, a very well received presentation on a great topic.

The Research Forum was a real buzz this year, what a difference having it at the start of the conference makes. All the presentations were of very high standard and all the feedback I got was that it was a great day. For all those of you who missed it I would strongly encourage you to get there next year.

All the presentations and all the posters are now on our website, feel free to download those that you particularly like or missed.

And finally, the Student Showcase which was held during the PDP day was a real highlight, all I can say is that I wish I was as confident and articulate as these PhD students when I went through my studies. Well done to all those who took part.

Now it is back to the normal business! If you have any thoughts, observations or suggestions for next year’s conference please drop me a line.
