Gold Coast 2009: Meeting Expectations

A total of 1173 fire industry staff and fire researchers mixed at the annual conference of the Bushfire CRC on the Gold Coast. The conference participants discussed the latest innovations in fire science over the two day program, while many others also gained a more in-depth understanding at pre-conference workshops on community safety and protecting fire fighters and a seminar on fire, fuel and weather.

Professor Domingos Xavier Viegas has provided an overview of a research program on forest fires propagation carried out at the University of Coimbra, in Portugal, at a Bushfire CRC seminar.

The Bushfire CRC participated in the Australian Science Festival alongside the annual CRC Innovations Conference at the National Convention Centre in Canberra in late May 2009.
