7th International Conference on Radioactivity in the Arctic & other Vulnerable Environments
2017-12-22 - Environmental radioactivity

[ 18-20 June 2018 - Oslo, Norway ]

THE 7th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RADIOACTIVITY IN THE ARCTIC & OTHER VULNERABLE ENVIRONMENTS

With a focus on studies concerning the behaviour and fate of radioactivity within Arctic and other vulnerable ecosystems, the conference will cover research dealing with the exposure of humans and the environment and cover a wide range of radioactive sources (including naturally occurring and anthropogenic radionuclides).

We would like to especially encourage abstract submission also on studies performed within vulnerable ecosystems beyond those traditionally considered under the Arctic/Antarctic conference remit. This might, for example, include Desert or Alpine ecosystems where previous studies may have been limited or remained unpublished.

There will be a special issue of Journal of Environmental Radioactivity (JER) with selected papers from the conference

The conference will continue the series established in 1993 in Norway and be an important forum for researchers, industry, regulators and other experts to meet and discuss their latest findings.

Conference themes

  • Nuclear Legacy
  • Risk Characterization & Assessment
  • Emergency Preparedness, Rehabilitation & Management
  • NORM, including technologically enhanced NORM from industry & radon
  • Radioactive Waste Management & Disposal
