Call for abstracts open for 2015 conference

The call for abstracts for the 2015 Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC and AFAC annual conference in Adelaide is now open. All CRC projects are encouraged to submit an abstract, with the conference being a major avenue to the fire, land management and emergency service industry.

Note that the process has changed for submitting a paper for the Research Forum. Based on abstract reviews, about 20 authors will be given the opportunity to submit a 3000 word paper for a CRC Special Edition of the Australian Journal of Emergency Management.

The conferene website contains all the details about the submission process, including how to submit an abstract. Make sure you check it out at www.afac.com.au/conference.
