Our goal for ICRP 2021 is to welcome the international radiological protection community to Vancouver, Canada for an unforgettable experience.
The world has made great progress in its fight against COVID-19. However, some regions still need support and vaccinations to limit infections.
Radiological protection is for everyone, to protect people and the environment everywhere. To deliver the highest-quality programme, and make the biggest impact, professionals from all parts of the world need to participate. Not just those who are ready to travel internationally.
We recognise the value of meeting in person and building professional and personal connections. This is particularly important as ICRP embarks on the review and revision of its general recommendations. Radiological protection is inclusive and diverse, and the delegate list should be no different.
It is with this in mind that the Planning Committee, with representatives from the International Commission on Radiological Protection, Canadian Radiation Protection Association, Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, and Health Canada, have decided to postpone ICRP 2021 until November of 2022.
This gives us another year to determine the best way for all to reunite in person safely and comfortably.
One benefit of organising an event like this is the digital platforms that have emerged throughout this pandemic. Those not able to travel to Vancouver will still be able to submit ePosters, and we are exploring other options to engage those unable to make it in 2022.
Questions about registrations, submitted abstracts, booked accommodations, and other information related to this postponement can be found in these Frequently Asked Questions.
We look forward to welcoming the international radiological protection community to ICRP 2021+1 in Vancouver, 7 – 10 November 2022.
