Welcome to ICRP 2021+1, the 6th International Symposium on the System of Radiological Protection, and 2022 General Meeting of the Canadian Radiation Protection Association. We will be welcoming delegates, sponsors, and exhibitors from around the world to beautiful 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 11 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+1 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 to produce the next set of fundamental recommendations that will guide legislation, practice, and policy around the globe.
During this process, ICRP will be engaging with many professionals and organisations, and will require unprecedented resources to ensure the System of Radiological Protection is fit for purpose for many years to come. Following the success of our Digital Workshop on The Future of Radiological Protection (October 2021), ICRP 2021+1 will provide the opportunity for delegates, organisations, and ICRP membership to continue the discussion, relationships, and planning that will guide this important work for the next 10+ years.
The last few years have been fraught with challenges, dealing with a pandemic that continues to present both similar and unique difficulties to all of us wherever we are. Despite these challenges, ICRP has been able to keep pushing forward thanks to the dedication of our volunteers and staff. For this year, we remain hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to personally welcome you to Vancouver in November of 2022. We cannot wait for you to experience ICRP 2021+1, where we will combine the best of in-person gatherings and digital platforms to maximise access, equity, inclusivity, and participation from around the world.
In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay happy.
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).
