Welcome to the ENVIRA2017 Conference

Dear Colleagues,
We are pleased to invite you to attend the ENVIRA2017, the International Conference on Environmental Radioactivity organized by the Centre for Physical Sciences and Technology (Institute of Physics) in Vilnius, Lithuania from Monday, May 29 to Friday, June 2, 2017. The venue and the Conference topics of the ENVIRA2017 which will be focusing on “Radionuclides as Tracers of Environmental Processes” were agreed on by the International Advisory Committee and confirmed at the closing session of the ENVIRA2015 conference held in Thessaloniki (Greece) in September 2015.

Following traditions of previous ENVIRA conferences, the ENVIRA2017 will consist of invited talks on relevant environmental radioactivity and radioanalytical topics, given by prominent representatives of the field, as well as by oral and poster contributions on various environmental radioactivity aspects. The conference will highlight the new scientific knowledge on the application of natural and anthropogenic radionuclides and isotopes in tracer studies in the terrestrial (atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, pedosphere, etc.) and marine (seawater, marine biota, sediments, etc.) environments. The latest technological innovations in low-level radioactivity detection techniques including radiometric and low-energy and high-energy mass spectrometry methods, in situ measuring techniques, continuous monitoring systems, and other recent analytical developments will be included in the conference program as well. Radioecological topics, protection of the total environment against radiation including Chernobyl and Fukushima impacts on the environment, waste management and remediation actions on contaminated territories will be also covered.

Contributions on all these aspects of environmental radioactivity research are welcome via submissions of abstracts. The deadline for abstract submission has been fixed for January 31, 2017. For abstract submission please visit Abstract submission.

Looking forward to meeting you in Vilnius in May 2017 at the ENVIRA2017.
