This is your opportunity to contribute content to the conference by submitting an abstract for consideration in the program. We are looking for abstracts in the following topic areas:

  • Radiation Processing Industry Developments

  • Supplier Innovation (e.g. Radiation Equipment, Dosimetry Developments, Modelling)

  • Scientific (e.g. Research and Development)

  • Regulatory (e.g. Standards development)
  • Education and Talent Development

  • Sustainability

Please note: Examples provided above are indicative and not an exhaustive list. All abstracts aligned to the scope of IMRP are greatly welcomed.

IMRP 2024 Guide: Call for Abstracts

The IMRP 2024 Program Committee will review all abstracts and select which topics are best for Plenary, Tech Theatre or Poster presentations.
