WELCOME FROM ARPS COMMITTEE
On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the 43rd Annual Conference of the Australasian Radiation Protection Society (ARPS). This year’s conference will be held at The Canberra Rex Hotel from 13-16 September 2021.
ARPS was founded in 1975 and has more than 200 members engaged in radiation protection activities. Members are engaged in a variety of activities designed to ensure the safe use of both ionising and non-ionising radiation for a wide variety of applications in medicine, pure and applied science, industry, and mining.
The theme of the 2021 conference is ‘Legacy and Innovation in Radiation Protection’.
The aim of the conference is to enrich the understanding of non-ionising and ionising radiation safety, highlight the importance of effective communication and stakeholder involvement on radiation safety, highlight new technologies and generate discussion across a broad range of radiation protection aspects looking to the past as well at the future. The Organising Committee is keen to put together a full and extensive program, which will include three days of scientific sessions.
This is a wonderful opportunity to be involved in this conference, and I hope you will join us in Canberra and support ARPS as it delivers the best and most recent radiation protection information to delegates. On behalf of the organising committee, I look forward to welcoming you to Canberra.
