Poster Presentations

A full list of posters accepted for presentation at ICFM7, grouped by topic and listed with presenting author. Information for poster presenters is available here. All posters will be considered for the Erich Plate Poster prize, to be judged my members of the ICFM7 Ad Hoc Committee. The prize is offered in recognition of the contributions of noted author and educator Erich J. Plate; consideration will be given to both technical content and visual appeal. Student posters as indicated at the time of abstract submission will be considered for a separate poster prize. The author and co-authors of both winning poster presentations will receive a free one year subscription to the Journal of Flood Risk Management courtesy of Wiley.
