Call FOR ABSTRACTS
FINAL DEADLINE October 15, 2021
This coming February the Health Physics Society (HPS) joins with the American Academy of Health Physics (AAHP), the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), The American Nuclear Society (ANS), The Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD), The Canadian Radiation Protection Association (CRPA), The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) and the Mexican Society of Irradiation and Dosimetry (SMID) to host the first ever North American Regional Congress for the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA). This meeting will be FULLY HYBRID.CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT
Now we are calling on you to give a talk or share a poster! Authors can present Live in person, Live virtually, Pre-recorded, Poster in person, OR Poster virtually so regardless of your plans, you can be part of this congress! Optional: during submission, you can request to publish a manuscript with your presentations!
Authors presenting PEPs, CELs or Refresher Courses should indicate which type of class it is as the topic. The program committee is looking for authors for the following topics below.
Please note there will be no extensions, INSTEAD if you need a little more time reserve a slot by contacting Charles Wilson, the task force chair with your subject and topic.
A submitted abstract or reservation with the task force chair is a commitment to present; cancellations should be avoided. All presenters must register and pay for the meeting by January 15, 2022 to be included in the final program. If extenuating circumstances prevent the presenting author from making the presentation, it is the author's responsibility to find an alternate presenter. Presenters who submit more than one oral abstract and cancel should find alternate presenters; otherwise, you may be limited to one abstract for future meetings.
The main themes of the scientiﬁc program, “Meeting Challenges in the Practice of Radiation Protection,” will be developed within the topic areas presented below.
- Biological effects of radiation
- Epidemiology of radiation exposure
- External dosimetry
- Internal dosimetry
- Environmental and wildlife dosimetry
