5th International Conference on Radioecology & Environmental Radioactivity (ICRER)
19 - 24 April 2020, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Deadline extened for abstract submission: 4 November 2019

Following the great success of the previous ICRER events, the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (DSA, formerly NRPA), the Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire (IRSN) and the International Union of Radioecology (IUR), are pleased to announce the 5th International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity (ICRER). The conference will be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 19 – 24 April, 2020, in cooperation with IAEA, FAO, UNSCEAR, OECD/NEA, EC-JRC, ICRP, AMAP, Journal of Environmental Radioactivity and European Radioecology Alliance. The local co-host is The Authority for Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection (ANVS) in the Netherlands.

The aim of the conference is to present, review and discuss recent achievements in the field of radioecology, environmental radioactivity and related disciplines. Furthermore, it is anticipated that the proceedings will contribute to improvements in radiological protection of humans and the environment by promoting further developments within these subjects.

The scope of the conference is broad covering basic and advanced scientific research and results related to topics such as:

  • characterising radioactive sources and exposure scenarios
  • integrated and graded approaches for human and environmental risk assessment
  • analytical methods/metrology
  • model development
  • advancement of emergency preparedness routines
  • environmental monitoring
  • technical requirements for regulators and operators
  • developments in the area of law and regulation concerning radiological protection of humans and environment
  • societal aspects of radiation protection

Contributions on multidisciplinary research approaches and integration of research data from radioecology with other related disciplines are strongly encouraged. Such studies will undoubtedly improve existing knowledge and allow development of scientific tools, adopted systems and methodologies to enhance regulatory practice in radiation protection.

The conference will be a key forum for researchers, industry, regulators and related experts. It will include a selection of oral presentations, as well as short oral presentations for selected posters and poster exhibitions.
