WELCOME FROM THE CHAIR

The Organising Committee extends a warm welcome to all radiation safety professionals, enthusiasts, students, supporting suppliers, businesses and related industries to participate in the 41st Annual Conference of the Australasian Radiation Protection Society. The conference will take place at the Adelaide Convention Centre in Adelaide from Sunday 11 September 2016 – Wednesday 14 September 2016.

You will come to South Australia at a time of significant community debate centred on risks and opportunities presented by a proposed expanded role in the nuclear fuel cycle, particularly in relation to the long term management of radioactive wastes. The South Australian Government will be considering the findings handed down by the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission, and work will increase on the development of Australia’s National Radioactive Waste Management Facility.  Both processes have generated much public discussion and public scrutiny and will continue to do so.

This year’s conference theme is “Perceptions, Risks and Opportunities”. The theme is broad and challenging and aimed at generating discussion and debate about good science and good practice in radiation protection, including how we can influence perceptions and contribute effectively to government and community understanding and decision-making.  I look forward to discussing these aspects with you in Adelaide in September 2016 and encourage submission of papers around this theme.
