Fire science revealed
More than 250 people attended the Science Day, the third day of the 2011 Bushfire CRC and AFAC annual conference in Sydney.
The Science Day saw 36 presentations from a range of researchers from the Bushfire CRC, and from external organisations focussing on various aspects of emergency management research.
Many Bushfire CRC end-users from partner organisations were in the audience, with some presenting on the science. Opening keynotes addresses were from Jose Torero (University of Edinburgh) and David Pannell (University of WA), and the closing keynote from Mike Fromm (US Naval Research Laboratory) were highlights and illustrated the vitality and diversity of the research in this sector.
