Presenting organisations include BOM, CSIRO, NSW DWE, NSW DECC, VIC DPI, ABS, QLD DERM, BMT WBM (Consultants) and local and international universities. Sessions from eWater on WaterCAST and Ground water/Surface water interaction were well supported. WaterCAST had a dozen papers presented, mainly by practitioners. The GW/SW interactions had a dozen papers and two sessions of workshops. RiverSystems was also well supported with three papers presented. A few papers were also presented on eWater's other themes.
