17th-19th May 2017
This Workshop, organised in cooperation with the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), will cover the State of the art and Needs for further research for emergency and recovery preparedness and response.
The NERIS Workshop 2017 will provide an opportunity to discuss and exchange views with NERIS Members, International organisations and European Research communities on priorities for the NERIS Platform.
Plenary sessions will be organised on topics related to the 3 research areas of the NERIS SRA:
Challenges in radiological impact assessments during all phases of nuclear/radiological events.
Challenges in coutermeasures and coutermeasure strategies in emergency & recovery, decision support & disaster informatics.
Challenges in setting-up a holistic framework for preparedness for emergency response & recovery.
In addition, Uncertainty handling issues for emergency and recovery as well as the Stakeholder involvement and engagement in emergency and recovery will be discussed in 2 plenary sessions. Participation of stakeholders to contribute to the NERIS SRA / NERIS Roadmap is also expected for this workshop.
The 8th NERIS General Assembly will be organised at this occasion on May 17, 2017 afternoon.
15-17 May 2017
Emergency exposure situations can arise as a result of a nuclear accident, a malicious or terrorist act, or any other unexpected radiological event. It requires a quick response and sustainable countermeasures and remedial actions in order to avoid or reduce adverse short-term and long-term consequences. Radiation exposures can be received by the public, first responders, workers and volunteers engaged in the post-accident recovery.
The ICRP recommendations and European Basic Safety Standards – the bases for national regulations - re-emphasize the principle of optimisation (ALARA) as applying to emergency exposure situations. For the purpose of radiological protection, reference levels for emergency exposure situations should be set. More importantly, it is necessary to establish emergency plans based on an optimum protection strategy, resulting in more good than harm for the exposed people and the affected territories. In that perspective, lessons learnt from the Fukushima accident are of utmost importance.
The objectives of the workshop are:
The workshop will consist of presentations (oral and posters) intended to highlight the main issues, and a significant part of the program will be devoted to discussions within working groups. From these discussions, participants will be expected to produce recommendations on ALARA in emergency exposure situations, which are addressed to relevant local, national and international stakeholders.

The Third International Conference on Risk Perception, Communication and
Ethics of Exposures to Ionising Radiation (RICOMET 2017) will be held from the
27th to 29st of June 2017 in Vienna (IAEA premises).
The conference Ricomet 2017 will include the following sessions, each open to presentations or posters:

The 4th International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity (ICRER) will be held in Berlin, Germany, 3-8 September 2017.
The overall goal of the conference is to review and discuss recent achievements in radioecology and related disciplines, as well as to promote continued development in these subjects in order to improve the radiological protection of humans and the environment. In September 2017, the conference will cover the acquisition of basic scientific knowledge in research dedicated to any human and wildlife exposure situations for a wide range of radioactive sources and scenarios (planned, existing and emergency situations), as well as identifying new societal needs along with technical requirements for regulators and industry.
For futher information, please visit the ICRER 2017 website.
10 - 12 October 2017
4th International Symposium of the System of Radiological Protection in conjonction with the European Radiological Protection Research Week are being organized in Paris from 10 to 12 October 2017.
This combined event will offer the opportunity for professionals, experts and researchers worldwide to discuss their respective concerns and the current challenges faced in all areas of radiological protection, as well as the ways
forward through new research, updating doctrines, or better interactions with stakeholders.
The ICRP-ERPW2017 conference welcomes your abstracts for oral papers and poster presentations. The submission period is Monday 24 April – Friday 30 June 2017
