U.S. Transuranium and Uranium Registries Conference Contributions

International Conference on Radioecology & Environmental Radioactivity, Hamilton, Canada, June 19-24, 2011

The International Conference on Radioecology & Environmental Radioactivity (ICRER) is organized every third year, to review and discuss recent achievements in radioecology and related disciplines, and to promote continued development in these subjects. It builds upon "ECORAD" and the "International Conference on Radioactivity in the Environment" and is a key forum for researchers, industry, regulators and experts for whom radioactivity in the environment is an interest area.

ICRER 2011 covered: the acquisition of basic scientific knowledge; identification of new societal needs and requirements for regulators and industry; the consequences of all sources of radioactivity: industrial, (enhanced) natural, accidental and potential; designing appropriate emergency preparedness routines; and supporting the development of laws and regulations that protect man and ecosystems from the effects of radiation.
