Abstract Deadline for European IRPA 2014 Is 15 September 2013

The Fourth European IRPA (International Radiation Protection Association) Congress, IRPA 2014, will be held 23–27 June 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland. The abstract deadline for submissions is Sunday, 15 September 2013. See the IRPA website for abstract submittals:

Radiation Protection Culture – A Global Challenge was chosen as the general theme in order to support the IRPA  initiative fostering improvements of the Radiation Protection Culture globally. In addition to offering a forum for the scientific exchange, it is IRPA's intention to enable a dialogue on important cultural elements such as values, beliefs, competencies, and recommended practices.

IRPA hopes to contribute to the success of this cultural approach and to provide guidance to equip radiation protection professionals to promote a successful radiation protection culture in their organization and workplace.

The congress will provide an excellent opportunity for making valuable personal contacts, to visit CERN*, one of the world's leading research centers, and to enjoy excursions.
