Welcome to ICRP 2021, the 6th biennial symposium on the International System of Radiological Protection. In line with ICRP’s priority for inclusiveness and global engagement, we will be welcoming delegates, sponsors, and exhibitors from around the world to Vancouver, Canada following previous symposia in the United States, the United Arab Emirates, South Korea, France, and Australia.
Our first event, ICRP 2011, took place only 10 short years ago in Bethesda, Maryland. Ever since, we have taken feedback from the attendees, our own experiences, and the latest trends and technology in conference management to bring you an up-to-date, world-class programme and experience.
The overarching theme for ICRP 2021 is Radiological Protection – The Next Generation, and the presentations, posters, and exhibitions will reflect just that. Over the next decade, ICRP will concentrate its efforts on reviewing the System of Radiological Protection in order to produce the next set of fundamental of recommendations that will guide legislation, practice, and policy around the globe.
During this process, ICRP will be engaging with more professionals and organisations, will require more resources, and will ensure the system of radiological protection is fit for purpose for many years to come. Serving as a launch point for these efforts, ICRP 2021 will provide the opportunity for delegates, organisations, and ICRP membership to begin the discussion, relationships, and planning that will guide this important work for the next 10+ years.
2020 has been fraught with challenges, dealing with a pandemic that continues to present both similar and unique difficulties to every country world-wide. The work of ICRP has been able to keep pushing forward thanks to the dedication of our volunteers and staff, but we remain hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to welcome you to Vancouver next November. Rain or shine, in-person or virtual, we cannot wait for you to experience ICRP 2021.
In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay happy.
The 6th International Symposium on the System of Radiological Protection (ICRP 2021) is hosted by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), and the Canadian Radiation Protection Association (CRPA).
