22nd International conference on radionuclide measurement and its applications

Radon Test Kit

University of Salamanca, Spain, 27 – 31 May 2019

EMPIR project Metrology for radon monitoring (16ENV10 MetroRADON) will provide traceable measurement and calibration for the monitoring of radon, which will enable regulators to meet new requirements and support implementation of new standards across Europe. Improvements in the reliability of radon measurements resulting from the project will provide a better basis for the development of effective strategies to mitigate and prevent the serious health effects of this pollutant which can be found in high concentrations in the air inside some buildings.

Results from the project will be presented at the International Conference on Radionuclide Metrology and its applications.

The conference programme will cover the fields of aspects of international metrology, intercomparisons, measurement standards and reference materials, radionuclide metrology techniques, alpha-particle and beta-particle spectrometry, gamma-ray spectrometry, liquid scintillation counting techniques, nuclear decay data, low-level measurement techniques, radionuclide metrology in life sciences, source preparation techniques, and quality assurance and uncertainty evaluation in radioactivity measurements.

In addition to the formal presentations, there will be working group meetings that will offer less formal scientific discussions.

Conference deadlines:

  • abstracts submission -  1 October 2018
  •  early registration - 1 March 2019


This EMPIR project is co-funded by the European Uniojn's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR Participating States.
