Innovation in Radiation Applications 

Thursday 20 April 2017 @ 8:00 am – Sat 22 April 2017 @ 5:00 pm

University of Wollongong, Northfields Avenue, Wollongong, NSW 2522

Innovation in Radiation Applications 2017 will unify the diverse scientific communities working with radiations.

All the themed sessions will have focus on Health and Medical Research – namely Radiation Protection, Radiobiology (Radioprotectors, Early Events, Therapeutic concepts and Low dose), Radiation transport – Modeling, Radiation Detection, Materials, Engineered and Applied Materials, Imaging, Medical Imaging, Nanoparticles, Chemistry (radiochemistry and radiotracers), Radiotherapy, Medical application of Synchrotron Radiation (Therapy and Imaging) and Earth and Environmental Sciences.

Several internationally renowned speakers will be invited to present their work in one of each of these sessions.

The organizing and scientific committee will actively review the abstracts and create the interesting shape of the program, with oral and poster presentations from internationally renowned experienced scientists, mid-career researchers and students. A special attention will be given to early career researchers and they will be given opportunities to present their work in front of international experts in a friendly and supporting environment. Awards will be distributed for best oral and poster presentations. There will be some social events (BBQ, conference dinner) to promote networking and future collaboration.
