Conference Call for Abstracts Close 7 December

1st November 2022

The theme for the May 2023 FMA National Conference has been set. “Preparing for the Unprecedented Flood”, will focus on applying lessons from recent floods and new research to better manage the increasing costs of extreme weather events.

The Call for Abstracts are now open, and will close 7 December 2022. We are looking for a range of high-quality presentations from across Australia, and overseas, dealing with riverine, overland and flash flooding, and coastal inundation. The content can be technical or non-technical to suit our varied audience, so you don’t need to be a “flood expert” to provide a presentation. The subject of the presentation should align with one or more of the following topic areas:

  • Modelling and flood data 
  • Flood prediction and warning 
  • Land use planning 
  • Infrastructure projects and asset management 
  • Flood policy, guidance and best practice 
  • Emergency preparedness, response and recovery 
  • Flood case studies and stories
  • Environmental aspects, climate change, coastal hazards and adaptation 
  • New technology and research
  • Flood damages and insurance
  • Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Maori perspectives
  • Social sciences, human behaviour and communication.

Please start planning your presentation now!

The 2023 Floodplain Management Australia National Conference will be held at Luna Park Venues, Sydney, NSW from Wednesday 24 – Friday 26 May 2023, with optional pre-conference workshops on Tuesday 23 May.
