Research Day proceedings are now available

The formal proceedings of the Research Forum, held as part of the Bushfire CRC and AFAC 2012 Conference in Perth are now available.

The Research Forum opened the conference week and featured 37 presentations from a range of researchers from the Bushfire CRC and external organisations - covering the full range of fire and natural hazards.

The Forum was a great opportunity for the research community and emergency management personnel to engage in focused discussions.

The 2013 Research Forum will once again be the first day of the Bushfire CRC and AFAC annual conference - Monday 2 September in Melbourne. Register at the conference website.
