Call for conference abstracts - deadline extended

The deadline for abstract submissions for our annual conference has been extended.

The BNHCRC is the major partner along with AFAC and the NZ Fire Service at the 2014 conference in Wellington, New Zealand, in early September.

You now have until Friday 21 February to get your abstracts in.

The theme for the conference is “After Disaster Strikes, Learning from Adversity”. Examining how emergency management services, land managers and communities prepared, responded to and assisted with recovery is vital to developing evidence-based policy and practice for the future.

Planning is well underway with the CRC featuring heavily throughout the program, including a dedicated Research Forum on the first day.

The conference will be a significant event for the early showcasing of the work of the CRC and full participation is expected from all researchers and students and members of the Board and Stakeholder Council.
