Call for Papers: 59th Annual Meeting of the Health Physics Society
13-17 July 2014, Baltimore, Maryland
Abstract Due Date: 7 February 2014
The Health Physics Society (HPS), formed in 1956, is a scientific organization of professionals who specialize in radiation safety. Its mission is to support its members in the practice of their profession and to promote excellence in the science and practice of radiation safety.
Today its nearly 5,000 members represent all scientific and technical areas related to radiation safety, including academia, government, medicine, research and development, analytical services, consulting, and industry in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The Society is chartered in the United States as an independent nonprofit scientific organization and, as such, is not affiliated with any government or industrial organization or private entity.
The Society also promotes scientific information exchange through our annual conference and mid-year meetings. Please consider submitting an abstract to share your scientific findings and information with other radiation safety professionals at this year’s annual radiation safety conference in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Health Physics Society’s Annual Meeting contains multiple formats for you to present your scientific information. The Technical Program kicks off with a Plenary Session of invited guests on Monday July 14th followed by Poster presentations in the exhibit Hall after lunch. Technical Sessions start later in the afternoon and continue through Thursday at noon.
Technical sessions are scheduled throughout the week and include many aspects of the practice of radiation safety. Although the number of technical sessions vary from year to year, typical sessions are listed below:
Accelerator Health Physics
