The workshop aims to bring weather, fire modelling and risk assessment researchers together with forecasters and fire officers to discuss a wide range of issues, with an emphasis on transfer of research to operations.

The agenda covers the latest research, forecasting practices, operational applications, bushfire risk management, technology and training. The packed program includes eminent international and national speakers and features a tour of the 2011 Margaret River fire site – an event used by several speakers to illustrate issues faced by practitioners. The workshop program promises an entertaining and thought-provoking three days that will be a major professional development activity for attendees. Outcomes of the workshop will be published.

The goals of the workshop are:

  1. To foster liaison between meteorologists, researchers, risk managers and fire agency practitioners and managers;
  2. To help practitioners keep up to date with the latest developments; and
  3. To provide feedback to researchers on the operational needs of forecasters, risk managers and fire officers.
