Following the successful FLOODrisk 2008 conference held in Oxford (UK), FLOODrisk 2012 will bring together researchers, policy makers and practitioners from across the world to share experience and progress made in flood risk research and policy and management practice.
FLOODrisk 2012 will include contributions from a variety of National, European and International flood related initiatives as well as wider international practice. In particular, the applicability of to flood risk management practice, and the influence of policy on research and practice will be considered.
There will be opportunities to arrange meetings on the Monday and Friday. If you would like more information on this please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be organising technical tours on the Friday and Saturday.
