Abstracts

Abstracts for 9ASM have now closed

We welcome abstracts on any subject related to the understanding and management of rivers and streams. Twenty-two years on from the inaugural Australian Stream Management Conference, the 2018 event will provide the opportunity to discuss recent developments and challenges in stream management, in the context of experiences from the last two decades and beyond. Focus areas commonly include strategic management of waterways, innovation in methods and techniques, catchment and riparian management, environmental flows, community engagement with waterway projects, drought and flood recovery management, the role of physical interventions, putting practice into policy, and monitoring and evaluation programs.

It is time to tell the Australian stream management community about the projects that you and your colleagues have been working on, your ideas, your plans, what has worked and what hasn’t! We want to hear from managers, policy makers, community representatives, scientists and those who are involved in some way in understanding and managing streams.

We are particularly seeking submissions that encourage debate and will allow participants to explore new ideas that challenge existing paradigms and engage participants in collaborative discussions.

  • Abstracts on any topic related to the conference will be considered.
