NERIS Newsletter 13th issue

   The 13th issue of the NERIS Newsletter is now available.
   This edition is dedicated to the new european research projects CONFIDENCE & TERRITORIES as well as the final SHAMISEN Workshop,
   held in Paris last March.

17th EAN Workshop (in collaboration with NERIS), Lisbon, Portugal - 15 – 17 May 2017

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:

  • To show, in particular from the experience of Fukushima accident, the challenges posed by the optimisation of exposures in emergency and post-accident situations;
  • To review the national arrangements for assessing, monitoring and mitigating the radiological consequences of an emergency, especially with regard to applying the ALARA principle to public and occupational exposures;
  • To review the arrangements for managing emergency doses to workers;
  • To review the arrangements for providing ALARA-based training for the different types of stakeholders who would be engaged in the emergency response and long-term recovery actions.

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.

ICRP 2017 & ERPW 2017 - 10-12 October 2017

10 - 12 October 2017 ICRP 2017 Announcement small

 

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 concerning the following topics:

  • Ethics in radiation protection
  • Management of emergency and post-accident situations: how to optimize population evacuation zones and related decision making processes?
  • Why is radioecology an essential science when analyzing human population exposure?
  • Benefit vs risk in diagnostic and interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiotherapy
  • Medical radiation incidents/accidents
  • Internal dosimetry
  • What are the evidences for trans/multigenerational radiation-induced effects and are they of concern?
  • Biomarkers and cohorts suitable for exploring low-dose/low-dose-rate exposure effects and individual susceptibility (humans, animals and plants)
  • Use of observatory sites for integrated long-term research activities
  • Radioactive iodine: gaps and knowledge needed for nuclear crisis integrated management
  • Dosimetry in complex fields
  • Eye lens exposure and monitoring
  • Individualized approaches for radiation protection

The submission period is Monday 24 April – Friday 30 June 2017.
All submissions should be made online at: http://icrp-erpw2017.com/abstracts/index.php?langue=en&onglet=0

4th ICRER, 3-8 September 2017, Berlin – Germany

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.
