ICRP 2021 is a joint symposium of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) and the Canadian Radiation Protection Association (CRPA). The scientific programme consists of four days of oral and e-poster presentations. Most oral presentations will be by invited speakers, but some submitted abstracts will be selected for oral presentations. ICRP 2021 is embracing the digital age with an e-poster platform which will provide more options and opportunities to showcase your work and interact with attendees.
We invite abstracts on any topic related to radiological protection, especially related to areas that may need attention as ICRP begins to review and refine the System of Radiological Protection to ensure it remains fit for purpose for the next generation. Topics to be covered in oral presentations include:
Advances in Medical RP
Broadening Optimisation of Protection (e.g. health, societal, economic, and environmental factors)
Effects on Humans and the Environment
Emerging Domains of RP (e.g. space, veterinary)
Ethical Foundations of RP
Innovations in Dosimetry (for humans and non-human biota)
Involving Young Professionals (in Canada and internationally)
Learning from Experience (operational and the System of Radiological Protection)
Low-dose Effects: Science & Implications
Optimisation of Protection in Emergency Response and Recovery
Review and Refinement of the Fundamentals of RP
RP and the Public (as stakeholders and beneficiaries of protection)
Accepted oral and e-poster presenters are required to register for ICRP 2021 to have their work showcased at the Symposium. E-posters can be accepted even if the presenter is unable to come to Vancouver, in which case single day registration is sufficient. If registration presents a financial barrier to submitting your e-poster, please contact ICRP2021abstracts@icrp.org.
The 6th International Symposium on the System of Radiological Protection (ICRP 2021+1) is hosted by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), and the Canadian Radiation Protection Association (CRPA).
