Call for Abstracts & Two Major Competitions at #SRP2019

2019 Annual Conference: 'The Art and Science of Radiation Protection'

During SRP's 2018 Annual Conference, it was stated that ‘Radiation Protection (RP) decisions should not be solely based on the science’ and it has been quoted that "RP is a Dark Art".

SRP's Charter states the object of The Society is to 'Promote the science and art of RP and allied fields for the public benefit'. This conference intends to address this theme with presentations from speakers and posters, both invited and submitted papers, covering all aspects of RP and allied fields, examining the application and communication of the art and science of RP. In support of this, we will also be running workshops on SRP Uncertainty, Soft Skills for Communicating Risk and ALARP.

To submit an abstract into the main programme for a presentation, you must send in your abstract by 31 October 2018.

Your abstract will then be peer reviewed, any abstracts considered inappropriate for the author’s chosen form (oral or poster presentation) may be offered acceptance for the alternative format.

Between 31 October 2018 and 15 March 2019, abstracts can be submitted for poster presentation only. Abstracts received after 15th March 2019 will be rejected. Authors of poster presentations are expected to attend the poster session held during the conference.
