DEPI are holding the 2014 Victorian Flood Forum on 13th and 14th November 2014 in Mildura.

Consultants, researchers, and all others with an interest in floods and floodplain management are invited to submit abstracts for presentations.

Presentations are encouraged in the following areas:
· Communicating flood risk
