Sydney 2017: annual conference

AFAC17 powered by INTERSCHUTZ, the annual conference of the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC & AFAC, will take place at the International Convention & Exhibition Centre in Sydney from 4-7 September 2017.

The CRC's all-hazards Research Forum begins the conference week. Showcasing the latest natural hazards science, the Research Forum is not just for scientists - it is the perfect opportunity for focused discussions between the research community and emergency managers on industry issues. These discussions are more important now than ever as we continue to embed research findings into practice.
