    I am very glad to invite you to participate in 12th RAD Conference which will be held at Hungest Hotel Sun Resort, Herceg Novi, Montenegro, in the period from June 17 to June 21, 2024 (www.rad2024.rad-conference.org). Please note that the conference sessions will last from Monday, June 17, in the morning, to Friday, June 21, 2024, in the afternoon, and plan to come not later than Sunday and to leave not earlier than Saturday.

     

    Please look at the conference topics, and we are absolutely sure that you will find some interesting topics that match your scientific interests: www.rad2024.rad-conference.org/topics. You can participate as an active participant (author of abstracts), as a passive participant (no abstract) or as a virtual offline participant.

     

    The current list of plenary lectures can be seen on the conference website:  www.rad2024.rad-conference.org/plenary_lectures

     

    We are very pleased to announce that the upcoming 12th RAD conference will feature High Intensity Laser-Plasma Particle Sources and Applications session(s) that highlights the latest advancements in laser-driven radiation production, encompassing a wide range of particle beams (electrons, ions, and neutrons). You can select this special session when you enter your abstract.

     

    We are also very pleased to announce that the upcoming RAD 2024 Conference will feature the special session(s) entitled Po and Radioactive Pb in the Environment: 210Po and 210Pb - in terrestrial, marine environments and groundwater; as tracers in the atmosphere; as chronometers in marine, cryospheric and lacustrine environments; in NORM industries; dose assessments, radiochemistry, quality assurance, kinetics and mobility; new techniques in their measurements.

     

    In addition, we are very pleased to announce a Mini Symposium on Nanoradiopharmaceuticals in Theranostics at the upcoming 12th RAD conference. This symposium will feature all aspects relating to the science, technology, design and development of Nanoradiopharmaceuticals as they relate to the development of diagnostic, therapeutic and theranostic agents. Presentations from corporations can highlight advances in nanoradiopharmaceuticals in theranostics from a pipeline of new products point of view.

     

    At RAD 2023 Conference, for the first time, we invited the young researchers (PhD holders younger than 35 years old) and students (undergraduate, master and PhD students) to participate. We are very happy that a large number responded to our invitation, so that they had their own oral sessions or participated in poster sessions. Their impressions were very good and I take this opportunity to invite all kinds of young researchers and students again!

     

    If you are unable to participate live, you can take a Virtual offline participation. It involves publishing an abstract with a DOI number in the Book of Abstracts (electronic version: www.rad-conference.org/books.php), the Certificate of Participation (electronic version) and the possibility of sending a presentation that will be posted on the Conference website as a part of the Virtual Offline Session: www.rad2023.rad-conference.org/virtual_session. It is also possible to submit a manuscript that will be considered for possible publication in the Proceedings of the RAD conference (www.rad-proceedings.org). There are no live virtual sessions.

    Radiation Protection and Wellness Webinar

    Consumer-Grade Electronic Radon Monitors:
    C-NRPP Test Results

    November 30, 2023

    Register for a free webinar at noon EST: https://radiationsafety-ca.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0qcOmurDMvGdI8VYnt0KX3FLb2yu5KPjco.

    November is National Radon Action Month. Learn about the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP)’s test of consumer-grade electronic radon monitors. To provide Canadian consumers with an unbiased performance-based comparison of the electronic radon monitors available to them, the C-NRPP developed a test procedure and conducted performance tests using RSIC’s certified radon chamber. Pam Warkentin, the executive director of the Canadian Association of Radon Scientist and Technologists (CARST) and the C-NRPP, and Brian Bjorndal, Director of the Fergal Nolan National Laboratories, will present on the study. Representatives from Health Canada will also be joining during the Q&A to help answer questions people may have about radon, a form of radiation that is found in many buildings at high enough levels to put people at increased risk of lung cancer.

    The information session will be followed by a 20-minute wellness break: beginner Tai-Chi led by Charlmane Wong of Ji Hong Tai Chi & Qi Gong of Richmond Hill, Ontario.

    We hope you are able to join us; but if not, register to get a link to the video and supporting information after the webinar.

    IRPA16 Organizing Committee has decided to extend the abstract submission deadline to December 1, 2023 (https://burkclients.com/IRPA/2024/site/call_for_papers.html).

     

    The International Congress of the International Radiation Protection Association, IRPA16, will take place 7-12 July, 2024, in Orlando, Florida, USA, with the theme “Radiation Harmonization: Standing United for Protection”.

    The IAEA's transport regulations SSR-6 (Rev.1) have established A1 and A2 values to contain package contents within acceptable radiological consequences after an accident, aligning with radiological protection principles.

    This necessitated a review to incorporate the latest ICRP dose coefficients, international standards, and calculation techniques, while addressing issues surrounding Q value limits and progeny treatment. The objective is to provide a scientifically sound analysis of the impact of 'A' value changes.
