This conference will bring together academics, practitioners and those with an interest in working with small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) for environmnetal monitoring and research. This three-day conference will be composed of scientific presentations (June 28th-29th) and a UAS Industry Day (June 30th), where companies will have 30 minute sessions to present their developments/applications. Plus, a demonstrative workshop with live demonstrations on data collection and processing using different platforms and sensors.
Phosphorus is a finite resource and there are many established techniques and technologies to recover it. Economic recovery is a huge challenge though and in many instances it is not financially viable unless there are other enabling drivers that allow the capital and operating cost deficits to be internalised. These include the nuisance associated with struvite precipitation, the impact of P on dewatering processes and broader benefits derived from reduced greenhouse gas emissions associated with reduced usaeg of Phosphorus fertilizers.

A decade on from the hugely successful 10th International Riversymposium and Environmental Flows Conference, International RiverFoundation is inviting water experts to Brisbane to reignite this conversation, with a focus on exploring the progress made, and challenges faced, since the release of the 2007 Brisbane Declaration and Global Action Agenda.
This conference will provide an up to date picture on the context, scale and impact of surface water flooding, advances in modelling and the key barriers to delivering SuDS with innovative case studies and collaborations. Following on from the National Flood Resilience Review, this event will examine the best opportunities and next steps to be taken by government, developers, critical infrastructure providers and a wide range of other stakeholders for surface water management.
The conference aims to examine:
