The 13th International Congress of the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA) was held in Glasgow on 14-18 May 2012. This flagship event in IRPA’s calendar was organised by the UK Society for Radiological Protection (SRP).
Almost 1500 scientific delegates attended from 74 different countries, together with around 100 Accompanying Persons and 200 exhibitors, making the Congress the world’s largest ever gathering of radiation protection experience and expertise. Everyone had something both to learn and contribute, to make this Congress the most wonderful opportunity for professional development and advancement of the science and practice of radiation protection.
I trust that all delegates enjoyed and were stimulated by the wide-ranging scientific programme. We focused on delivering our Congress Theme Living with Radiation – Engaging with Society, and I hope that this leaves you better equipped to address your stakeholders and the public in the future.
The Congress Conclusions are now available in draft form for consultation through this website and will be published in the Journal of Radiological Protection. Please provide any comments you may have by the 7th of October, as specified in the introductory page of the paper. In addition we are making all the scientific content of the Congress available to you through the Downloads page of this website, where you will find:
•Podcasts of seven key sessions, including the SRP Schools Lecture
•All available submitted papers and poster PDFs
•Powerpoint presentations given at the Congress, supplemented in selected cases by a full audio record of the session.
I believe that this material makes a major contribution to the advancement of radiation protection.
I hope that all delegates enjoyed the Congress, and I look forward to meeting you again at the IRPA14 Congress in Cape Town, South Africa in 2016.
