The IMRP programs has evolved since the first meeting in 1976 to ensure that it always reflect the needs, expectations and status of the industry and science of radiation processing.  This evolution continues for IMRP20 and the Program Committee is currently developing content that is topical, enriched and lively.

The IMRP20 program will include plenary sessions with regional, technology and application updates from industry leaders.  In a new format, there will also be three forums focussed on irradiation technologies, sterilization of healthcare products and phytosanitary irradiation.  The irradiation technologies forum will cover developments in gamma, electron beam and X-ray irradiation technologies.  The sterilization and phytosanitary irradiation forums are being developed in collaboration with the Society for Sterility Assurance Professionals (SfSAP) and the Phytosanitary Irradiation Platform (PsIP) to further strengthen their content.  Separate registration for these two-day forums will be possible enabling participants to focus on their areas of interest and gain in depth understanding of these evolving technologies and applications.

IMRP20 will continue to include panel discussions, poster presentations, an exhibition, technical tours, side events and a pre-conference training course for students.
